NOUSAKU began metal casting in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture in 1916. During our early years, we created Buddhist altar fittings, tea ceremony accessories, and flower vases, later adding tableware, home accessories, lampshades, and other decorative items to our lineup. The fine appearance of our wind-bells, tableware, etc. is due to our heritage of advanced casting and refined finishing techniques handed down over a 400-year period. With the aid of modern machinery, industrial technology and the cultivated wisdom of past masters, NOUSAKU achieves outstanding harmony in its use of innovative design and top quality materials, and offers excellent value for money.
