Hakuhodo

Hakuhodo Sumitani Saburo Shoten was established in 1939 in the metalwork city of Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture. Starting in the Edo period and extending throughout its 400-year history as a copperware town, Takaoka has been producing an array of cast copperware goods such as flower vases, tea utensils, Buddhist ceremonial items, and decorative hardware. More recently, the traditional manufacturing and processing techniques used in cast copperware are being developed for use with a wide range of metals, such as iron, aluminum, and tin.
