Japan Culture Workshops

1:00pm – 7:00pm
¥500 – ¥2,500

Three days of Japanese culture workshops during the Tanabata Festival in Asagaya.

You can learn how to make various kinds of sushi, how to make accessories for a kimono/yukata, and about traditional tea ceremonies. You can also learn shodo (Japanese calligraphy), and origami peace cranes for Hiroshima Day (August 6th).

You can even try wearing a yukata (Japanese summer robe) with the assistance of a kitsuke professional, someone who is highly skilled at helping you wear your yukata properly (even Japanese often take advantage of this kind of service).
