Takaoka A Town of Japan Heritage
Takaoka City, in Toyama Prefecture, has known for over 400 years as a major center for production of castings, including copperware.
Unique metal processing and coloring technology backed up by tradition and history.
The highest quality only found in the handiwork of skilled craftsmen.
Making the impossible possible by continuing to take on challenges.
Proprietary coloring technology created by utilizing materials and the pursuit of new colors.
Coloring copper, which produces a beautiful color, is not merely painting on color. It is a traditional technique that vividly colors copper while masterfully controlling chemicals and fire.
By developing a coloring technique that could only be done with casting and establishing an extremely difficult coloring method for thin copper plates of 1mm or less, it is possible for us to make highly innovative products and crafts.
