In the center of Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the region of Kaga in Ishikawa prefecture expands across the base of Hakusan, one of Japan’s so-called “three famous mountains,” facing the Sea of Japan. At the end of the 16th century, this region became the domain of the Maeda daimyo who were celebrated for their cultural pursuits. Since that time, a variety of forms of arts and cultures have thrived in this region.
