Quiet Creativity and Culture

I had such a good time time at this activity -- I highly recommend it. The staff were incredibly kind and helpful. Aside from making and poking holes in your paper, you are involved in every step, including designing, tracing and cutting the stencil you use for the cover art. More than worth the price, and the souvenir you take with you is definitely meaningful.

Rubbing elbows with true artisans!

The staff here are so nice. They served me right away, even though I came very early. They like to explain a lot about Japanese history and culture. The book binding is organised to be quick and easy to do, so that both kids and adults can enjoy it. I only wish I could have learned more about the process! If only I knew more Japanese language!
What really impressed me, however, is that they built some katagami, or traditional artisan stencilling, often done on silk. Kozaka San and Monoba San really are great to chat with as well, and well tolerate poor Japanese language skills. :)
