【Workshop at Pongyi】Making gold leaf chopsticks at night

Would you like to try pasting gold leaf and make your own chopsticks at night ?

Kanazawa is the top producer of gold leaf in Japan.
You can make a pair of chopsticks with “Entsuke kinpaku (gold leaf)” which was registered as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2020.

Having an experience of traditional Japanese culture will be one of the good memories of Kanazawa !

【Attractive point①】Workshop you can enjoy at night !

There are very few places you can experience the traditional Japanese culture after evening time in Kanazawa.
This program is held at 8:00 p.m., so you can enjoy visiting some famous sightseeing spots and eating local food in Kanazawa in the daytime.

【attractive point②】Small group workshop  You can make at your own pace

This program is for up to 5 people, so you can ask anything to a staff and make chopsticks at your own pace.

In addition, we are happy to give you the information about Kanazawa if you want.
Please feel free to ask us at the workshop.
