Kanazawa has a rich historical and cultural atmosphere, and the relocation of the gallery to this location will add to the charm of both Kanazawa and the gallery. Currently, about 1,900 pieces of fine crafts, including ceramics, lacquerware, dyed goods, gold, and other works of art, will be transferred to Kanazawa, accounting for more than 70% of the original Tokyo collection.
