Sakuda Gold & Silver Leaf Shop

For 80 years, Sakuda has continued to spread the Gold and Silver Leaf art of Kinpaku*, which has been cultivated through a long history of 400 years. Sakuda produces and sells golden 'byobu' (folding screen) and various gold leaf art and craft as well as "Aburatori-gami" (face oil blotting paper) which are very popular. You can also have a hands-on experience of Kinpaku. You can make your original works by applying kinpaku on chopsticks or small boxes in a design that you like.* Kinpaku (Gold Leaf) is gold which is beaten into an extremely thin paper-like sheet and applied decoratively.
