In 1979, Kutani village was designated a historic landmark for its porcelain kiln sites. Today, visitors can find there a stone monument honoring Maeda Toshiharu and his retainer Gotō Saijirō, who administered the practical aspects of the porcelain business. In more recent years, efforts to preserve and maintain the birthplace of Kutani have continued.
