If the clang of metal sounds just as exciting as a clink of glasses, you'll love this tour of Toyama's local industries. Start the afternoon with a walkthrough of Nosaku, where some of the finest Takaoka copperware is made from special bending techniques. There, you'll try casting your own "guinomi" sake glass as a souvenir.
