The gallery features the confectionery culture of Kaga Hyakumangoku. The precious materials exhibited in this gallery include wooden molds used to make Rakugan (Japanese-style confection) and confectionery sample books, which have been passed down through the generations from the Edo era, and confectionery artworks made by taking full advantage of confectionery skills.
Asano Taiko was founded in 1609 in the early Edo era in Fukudome, Ishikawa Village (currently Fukudome-machi in Hakusan City) in response to a request from the Maeda family, the ruling family of the Kaga Clan. Since its foundation, Asano Taiko has produced taiko (large Japanese drums) and tsuzumi (Japanese hand drums) used in Noh and Gagaku as well as military armor. Accordingly, Asano Taiko has helped promote performing and material arts of the Kaga Clan under civilian government. These traditional skills have been handed down through the generations since its foundation. Asano Taiko currently has the largest domestic market share for drums larger than approx. one meter and also has a branch shop in Torrance, California (USA).
