A remarkable 99% of the gold leaf produced in Japan is made in Kanazawa. The climate and skilled technology in Kanazawa were well suited to metal foil production. The thinness of the gold leaf is about one ten-thousandth of a millimeter. Gold leaf that is as light as air, that can even float with a sigh.
In the hand, thin gold leaf shakes, and one must guard against letting it fly away with one's breath. Enjoy the gripping and fascinating experience of gold leaf gilding.
