With its founding in 1916 Nousaku Corporation started by producing cast metal in Takaoka City (Toyama Prefecture), which has flourished as a center of industry over the last 400 years. The manufacturing process involves a technique called Chuzo (casting) pouring the molten metal into a mold with a hollow cavity of the desired shape allowing it to solidify. The finished metal ware is then called Imono (cast metal).

After its establishment Nousaku first started manufacturing Buddhist altar fittings, tea sets and flower vases, but had to make additions to their lineup due to lifestyle changes of today's society. That's why Nousaku started to expand their assortment of goods with tableware, bells and other interior goods at beginning of the 21th century, using the famous manufacturing process of Takaoka's metal ware casting.
By participating as an exhibitor at various events Nousaku overcame difficulties and succeed in making a name for themselves.


Living up to the request of customers who wanted tableware made from cast metal Nousaku started the production of an antibacterial tin tableware – its second characteristic being the bendability of the material. This is how the “Bendable Basket Series “, which is one of Nousaku's most iconic products, came to be.

Summing up the recent years of its history Nousaku pursued and continues to pursue innovative challenges by exploring other fields of businesses, in which their expertise may be utilized, including lightning equipment, cast metal for art or construction, or parts for medical instruments.
Nousaku's mission is to preserve and hand down the knowledge of their craft to the next generation, while searching for new designs that challenge the limits of the materials they work with. Not only is the preservation of the culture and craftsmanship rooted in Takaoka one of Nousaku's aims but also their innovation.
