Takaoka-City, with its 400 year history, has avoided the ravages of war and still retains the old-time atmosphere of the Edo period. Since the first Kohachiro opened a metal casting workshop in 1860, Ohtera Kohachiro Shouten has been associated with Takaoka Bronzeware.
At present, we have opened our house up to the public with manufactures’ and wholesalers’ goods set up as a gallery. Please feel the spirit of the local artists including works by my son. Enjoy the moment in a space which you can feel history.
