Gonnyonsa is a brand created by experienced artisans who believe in creating products rooted in everyday life, unlike typical cast metal items.
More than 400 years ago, when Maeda Toshinaga, lord of Kaga Domain, took up residence at Takaoka Castle, he invited 7 metal casters to Kanaya-machi in Takaoka as part of his prosperity policy for the castle town. They took their brand name from name of a predecessor’s shop preserved from that time, and they carry on the age-old techniques into the future.
