“Kaga Gosai”(加賀五彩) live on today in Kanazawa.

It is a traditional color of Kanazawa mainly used in Kaga Yuzen. “Kaga Yuzen”is one of the historical dyeing techniques for Kimono. The history stems from 500 years before and has been cultivated in the samurai culture of the region widely known as“Kaga Hyakumangoku”. “Kaga Gosai” features five deep colors of indigo (blue), ancient purple (purple), grated fat (red), loess (yellow) and grass (green).

Beauty is ever alive, because for it there is no past, no future, but the present. Go to Kanazawa to find the colors! I recommend the following spots, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, D.T.Suzuki Museum, Omicho Market, Kanazawa Station, Kenrokuen Garden, Higashi Chaya District, The Samurai Houses …
