Brand Description

NOUSAKU is a metal casting manufacturer in Takaoka, a city that has been the centre of Japan’s copper industry for over 400 years. Founded in 1916, NOUSAKU began as a maker of Buddhist ritual objects, Japanese tea sets, and vases made of brass and bronze – some of the many objects it continues to produce today. 

Casting is a manufacturing process in which a molten metal is poured into a mould to form an object of the desired shape. Every NOUSAKU product starts with the creation of a sand mould, and then undergoes several finishing processes. Each piece is hand-finishing by experienced craftsmen, accentuating its material beauty and refinement.

On a visit to Japan, you can visit the NOUSAKU factory in Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture, for a factory tour and workshops to craft your own original piece of metalwork. Check out our Toyama travel guide to find out more.
