Takaoka Iron Kettle: Takaoka Iron Kettles are iron kettles produced in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture. The biggest feature of the Takaoka Iron Kettle is a unique technique known as “Wax Casting” which creates a beautiful background pattern. It’s history dates back to more than 400 years ago and its delicate yet dynamic technique has been passed on generation after generation by Takaoka craftsmen.
Phoenix with gold and silver inlay: The expressive iron kettle has flying up to the top Phoenix at the front, and overlooking Phoenix at the back. As the Phoenix being a fire God and sacred animal, this is considered good luck.
