Foundry Risaburo

We have produced a bronze ware for over a century: since the first Risaburo started foundry work in the Japanese main production area of bronze ware in Kanaya-machi in the Meiji era. We integrate a new style into traditional technique, and each single bronze ware is made by hand.

Visitors can create their original paperweight or wind-bell made of tin with the mold they design.
