A historical workshop filled with the sound of hammers
GYOKUSENDO

Founded in 1816. For centuries they have been making hand-hammered copperware. After starting with kettles, they expanded their range to include teaware, barware and flower vases. Their tableware is made from a hand-hammered sheet of copper; each product shines and fits better in one's hand with age. During the festival, they will hold workshops in which visitors can make a small dish (Experience 1) and a sake cup (Experience 2).
