My daughters were delighted to make their own souvenirs from Kyoto. Ms. Inui was very knowledgeable, kind, and accommodating. She patiently showed our daughters how to make beautiful and precious art work on lacquer pieces, using gold powder and mother of pearl. We brought back a piece of Kyoto with us. The experience was fantastic and memorable.

My wife and I spent an excellent time creating our own lacquer designs, which we then took home with us. The process was interesting and the results made perfect gifts for friends and family. Besides artistic merit, this is an excellent way to spent a couple of hours out of the rain or heat in central Kyoto.

Conveniently located and affordable price to enjoy an experience to understand and enjoy Japanese arts and crafts. Made my own beautiful Japanese lacquer design that I could share with my family after the trip. Run by a small family business which enables personable instructions. One of the best discoveries in Japan.
