Description

At Gomei Gold Leaf Handicraft, we work in a variety of fields, from Buddhist altars and their fittings such as statues and pedestals, architecture including the copper roof tiles of Osaka Castle, the city emblem of Kyoto City and the Gion Festival spears, as well as collaboration with corporations and foreign luxury brands.

Wanting both Japanese and foreign tourists to be able to experience this Kyoto handicraft, we started running a gold leaf tooling workshop in 2000, and also sell original gold leaf products. In particular, our gold tooling workshop using incredibly thin and beautiful Kanazawa-produced rimmed gold leaf is something that you can only experience here. In this workshop, an artisan will help you create your own original work of art.

This is an rare cultural experience to be tried in Kyoto, only eight minutes on foot from Kyoto station. The workshop takes less than one day, so you can take your artwork home with you. Our website contains more information about the workshops in Japanese, English and Chinese, and you can book directly from the below website.
