You will try one of three craft types: Urushi lacquered chopsticks, gold leafing, or gold powdering

A butsudan is a cabinet used to store Buddhism related items in Japanese homes. Here you can experience three of the processes used to make these glorious items for yourself: gold leafing, gold powdering, and making lacquered chopsticks. Under the instruction of master craftsmen, make something that will last while also making memories of your visit. You can take your creation home with you. Each experience only takes around an hour, and you can make reservations for your desired time from the official home page.
