Hakuichi, Gold Leaf Museum & Boutique / Kanazawa Bikazari Asano

Learn about gold leaf through sight, touch, and taste at Hakuichi, a gold leaf museum and shop.

1) Gold leaf application trial

Working with stenciled gold leaf so thin it could away fly with just a sigh, decorate your choice of nine items, such as a postcard, chopsticks, decorative boxes and hand mirrors.

2) Gold leaf application training

Create an original design with gold leaf, working carefully with masking tape. Select one of six items to make ornate, such as a candle holder, small plate, hand mirror, or tray.

Other experiences are also available, like learning to transfer, position and store gold leaf as masters do.

Please reserve in advance.
