Immerse Yourself to Japanese Tradition
Junya Sakuta (Japan/Kyoto)
Shota Yamamoto (Japan/Tokyo)
Sosuke Ichihashi (Japan/Uji)
Shikki (Japanese lacquer ware) making
We visited a Japanese lacquer art master, saw his works, and tried making our original lacquer wares such as bowls and chopsticks by ourselves. It was a good opportunity to explore Japanese beauty and value deeply.
Mochihiroi (or Okonai, which is a traditional festival in Kawada)
We joined Mochihiroi, where they threw hundreds of rice cakes and people struggled to catch them. Not only getting many rice cakes, we also enjoyed the traditional Japanese atmosphere during the festival.
Kawada is very unique place even in Japan not only because they have many traditional staffs such as festivals, but because Kawada has so many nice and active people with their own philosophies. If you want to explore Japan deeply, you should come here.
