The Kaga/Hakusan area in the Hokuriku region in south-western Ishikawa Prefecture is blessed with grand nature and natural hot springs. The Kaga Onsen-kyo hot spring resort, which includes Yamashiro, Yamanaka, Katayamazu, and Awazu, is surrounded by picturesque views of the coast to the majestic Mt. Haku (Hakusan). Kutaniyaki, a Japanese ceramic ware that flourished in the beginning of the Edo era (1603-1867) and is still prominent today, has its origins at Yamanaka Onsen. Kutaniyaki glazes incorporate five vibrant colors – greens, yellows, purples, reds and blues – in bold designs that define its unique characteristics.
