Master Kanazawa’s unique kimono-dyeing methods


Kaga Yuzen is a 17th-century dyeing technique born in Kanazawa. This ornate craft has long been associated with the upper echelons of society and is popularly used for kimono designs. A local artisan can teach you the method, bringing you closer to Kanazawa’s cultural heritage. Further engage with the city's history by renting a Kaga Yuzen kimono to wear among the traditional streets and gardens.
