SpotGold leaf

Most of the gold leaf made in Japan are produced in Kanazawa, and used for decoration of traditional craft works such as lacquerware, folding screens, and Buddhist altars. Aburatori-gami, or oil blotting paper, is collaterally produced during the process of making gold leaf. It, too, is a Kanazawa specialty.
