Thoroughly enjoy Kanazawa’s excellence in the fields of crafts and hospitality

Experience making gold leaf chopsticks in a nice traditional townhouse

With its windows overlooking the peaceful flows of one of the numerous canals that run through the city of Kanazawa, Pongyi is a small and cozy guesthouse set in an adorable old townhouse. 

Not far from all major sightseeing attractions and only 10 minutes on foot from the station, Pongyi is a haven of heartfelt hospitality, a “home for those away from home”, as the manager says. 

It’s the perfect place to rest after a whole day of sightseeing, but how about taking advantage of being around and try out your skills at one of Kanazawa’s most emblematic crafts during the evening, while you are there and feeling at home?


Accounting for 99% of Japan’s national gold leaf production, Kanazawa prides itself with its historical bond to a very diverse and creative craft, “Kanazawa Gold Leaf”, which UNESCO has recognized as an “Intangible Cultural Heritage”. 

Guided by affable staff providing all the tools and explanations needed, experience designing a pair of chopsticks covered in gold leaf and create yourself an unforgettable memento of your stay in Kanazawa.
