About Hakuhodo Saburo Sumitan Shoten
In 1611, when Toshinaga Maeda, the lord of the Kaga domain, called on seven craftsmen from Kunitani Minami Kawachi (currently Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture), the history of Takaoka Copperware that lasted over 400 years began.
Weapons and armor, vase, tea utensils, Buddhist fittings, jewelry, and even the Great Buddha up to 15 meters long, the manufacturing methods and processing techniques cultivated in the process of producing various copper products are now used for iron, aluminum, tin, etc. Expanded to metal.
