It is a training facility for craftsmen to hand down and develop traditional crafts cultivated in Ishikawa, and to promote crafts culture with "training, showing and participating" as its theme. |

In addition, the citizens' workshop has been opened for citizens, and many crafts classes are held throughout the year. It displays excellent craftswork and materials, and shows its visitors the way students create.
