Lots of fun, easy to understand, and a great experience. Everyone was very helpful and patient with the whole process. We each made our own stamp.

The instructors were clearly very experienced in making Hanko stamps. Both instructors have family businesses, one of which has been in business for over 60 years and the other for a staggering 120 years. The instructors provided detailed step by step instructions and a translator was there to explain it all in English. You first get to decide what is going to be written on the stamp. Then you practice drawing the image , which makes it unique to you and a one of a kind. You transfer the image onto a small stone and carve out what you have drawn. When completed, you have an incredible stamp. Stamps in Japan are used as official signatures even today. They are similar to stamps used in Europe that were heated and stamp on wax to seal letters. The stamps we made are incredible and we will treasure. This is a definite, must do if ever in Hiroshima.
