Kaga Onsen-kyo, southwest part of Ishikawa Prefecture has Japan’s prominent hot springs, including Yamashiro, Yamanaka, Katayamazu, and Awazu. There are many small but unique inns and hotels in the hot spring town at the foot of Mt. Haku (Hakusan). The resort is also surrounded by picturesque views of the coast to the majestic Mt. Haku (Hakusan). Kutaniyaki, a Japanese ceramic ware that flourished in the beginning of the Edo era back in 300 - 400 years ago and is still prominent today, has its origins at Yamanaka Onsen. Kutaniyaki glazes incorporate five vibrant colors - greens, yellows, purples, reds and blues - in bold designs that define its unique characteristics.
