A casting manufacturer that expands the possibilities of materials with its solid technical capabilities
NOUSAKU is a casting manufacturer founded in 1916 in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture. NOUSAKU has infused new sensibilities into the casting technology that has been handed down in Takaoka for over 400 years, and has developed products fitting into modern lifestyles. It has been attracting attention both in Japan and abroad for its innovative idea, including “KAGO” series of bendable vessels made of 100% tin, which makes the most of the soft characteristics of tin. In addition, in recent years, it has been boldly taking on the challenge of creating products that transcend the boundaries of their field, such as medical equipment, and continues to pursue new possibilities for metal materials. In 2017, it completed a new building with a space where visitors can tour the foundry and experience casting, as well as a café where they can enjoy local food in NOUSAKU tinware, and where to experience the appeal of traditional industries in a new way.
