Kaga Yuzen

 Kaga Yuzen es una técnica de tintado de prendas que se caracteriza por sus motivos realistas y pictóricos basados en los cinco colores tradicionales de Kanazawa (índigo, carmesí oscuro, amarillo ocre, verde hierba y púrpura antiguo). Hay varios talleres disponibles que ofrecen una auténtica experiencia incluyendo el pintado y el tintado de las prendas con plantillas. También hay talleres que permiten vestir el auténtico kimono Kaga Yuzen,  lujosos kimonos que hasta los japoneses anhelan llevar.


Kaga Mizuhiki

 El Mizuhiki (atado de cordón decorativo) se utiliza en la envoltura tradicional japonesa. El Kaga mizuhiki es una forma tridimensional de la técnica tradicional del mizuhiki del resto de Japón. Con este arte de "atado" se crean accesorios y obras de arte. Mientras aprende el significado del nudo mizuhiki, puede hacer bonitos accesorios y otros artículos al estilo tradicional de Kanazawa.


Porcelana de Kutani

Esta porcelana se caracteriza por sus diseños realistas y es famosa en todo el mundo por los colores representativos de Japón, "Japan kutani". Los visitantes pueden aprender en los talleres este arte usando los mismos materiales que los artesanos.


Incrustación Kaga Zogan 

   La incrustación es una técnica en la que el metal se talla y se rellena con diferentes metales para producir patrones. En el periodo Edo se usaba para decorar los arneses y las armaduras de los samuráis, y en la actualidad también se emplea para fabricar accesorios del hogar como jarrones, quemadores para el incienso, collares y pendientes. Los talleres requieren mucha paciencia y dedicación, sin embargo, crear su propio accesorio único es muy satisfactorio.


Artesanía de pan de oro

En Kanazawa se concentra la mayor parte de la producción nacional de pan de oro. En los talleres, puede adherir por sí mismo pan de oro de 0,1 micras de grosor a platos pequeños, cajas pequeñas, palillos, etc. Se trata de una experiencia muy popular, ya que es relativamente rápida y sencilla y tiene un precio asequible.
