Kaga is famous for its onsens. The most famous are none other than Yamashiro, Katayamazu, and Yamanaka onsens, which all have over a thousand years of history. Collectively, these onsens constitute the Kaga Onsen Village. The onsen industry is closely associated with Yamanaka lacquerware and maki-e techniques. Onsen-goers become the spokespeople for the local craft industry, attracting many artisans to set up shop there and contribute to a far-renowned lacquerware culture.
