SASHIKO; Learn the Japanese embroidery
In my workshop, you will make one SASHIKO coaster of your own. You can choose your favorite pattern from various samplers, and I’ll teach how to stitch from the scratch. You can also choose the color of thread and fabric to make your original one. All the tools and materials (threads, fabric and the needle) will be provided. You don't have to bring anything but you and your creativity! There are mainly two methods in sashiko; Moyou-zashi and Hitome-zashi. My workshop is specialized in Hitome-zashi technique. It uses grid lines as a guide to stitch. After stitching horizontal lines all the way, we add the vertical lines or diagonal lines(depends on the pattern). You will be just amazed how the beautiful pattern emerges as you stitch. Both of the beginners and the experienced embroiderers are welcomed since you can choose the pattern to make by yourself. Please come and join me to experience Japanese beautiful folk embroidery.

Learn Kawaii wagashi making over matcha
We'll first show you our showcase of our original designed sweets before we start class! Then "Ta-da!" I invite you to enter my atelier normally customers cannot come in & here we go! A local fluent translator Atsuo will help me in explaining details about wagashi ingredients, motifs, and technique! First you will learn about basic ingredients, materials and tools for making wagashi using visual chart, and I will demonstrate the basic skills step by step for you to follow and do the same way by modelling, moulding, and shaping your own Japanese sweet. You can learn not only the basic skills of making, but also the beauty of Japanese traditional colours used and how I express seasons in the design of the "sweets". Don't worry, you can take your time at your own pace, and focus on getting inspiration and enjoying the making! There are some difficult techniques where I will help you. :-)  Also, you can ask me to take photos of your making as you have to keep your hands clean! Making will be about 40 minutes, and when finished, we will have a matcha tea time to taste your own wagashi. My wife will also pack the remaining wagashi for your taking out! Ingredients are red beans(azuki), white kidney beans, sugar, yam potato, agar, and edible colors from vegetables and plants. Sometimes I may use egg yolk or rice powder, which I can avoid to use if you ask me in advance. Other things to note After the experience, we will serve you matcha tea (included in the price), and you can eat your own sweets you made through your experience. For wagashi you will make I only use natural edible colors from vegetables and plants.
只要走点路,在岚山也能看到具有四百年历史的茅葺合掌古建筑。
去过岚山的人也许很多,但他们总是会疏忽去访问一下那个秘境——奥嵯峨。OKUSAGA——一个很优雅很有气质的地方。 我们从岚山公园出发,在周恩来总理的题碑前,留个念。 再从竹林穿过荷塘。接着去愛宕古道。 (这就是我要带你们去的地方。听着鸟声,漫着轻快的步伐,沿路您会发现许多好店铺,其实应该说是隐居小店,深有品味。人很少很清静。您可以拥有自己的空间,不被时间追赶,慢慢地悠闲散步。时而可以停下脚步,深呼吸一下,定会感受到大地自然的清新气息。) 途中经过隐居味特浓的“狸”陶苑。 然后去观赏一下青苔庭园,它美得让你无法呼吸。 逐渐我们会走进嵯峨的传统建造物保存地区,在日本唯一一家手工制作蚕茧娃娃的老店里,可以亲身体验制作茧娃娃。 然后前往具有四百年历史的茅葺合掌香鱼老客栈。推荐樱花糯米饼和志恩子米饼。 最后我们去的是清滝川附近的愛宕寺。因为它远离岚山的中心,所以人很少,而且在山上,青苔绿得深而丽。值得一访的地方,并是拍照留念的好场所。 这块名叫“高雄”的地方,并且是京都有数的枫叶名胜地区。 其他注意事项 因为是散步型旅行,所以请穿合脚的运动鞋或平跟鞋,以免劳累。
Farm to table permaculture workshop
This experience is a hands-on practice of permaculture and community gardening on the 400 years old estate just outside of our traditional Japanese house. You'll join our gardening team and get your hands dirty. You can come from 8.30am~9am. We work in the forest garden until 12 noon. Then, we have a seasonal farm to table lunch around 12.30 and the day is over. If you want, you can have a shower at the end of the experience. This activity is a good follow-up for the voyagers that enjoyed our other experience "Food forest tasting & Japan lord mansion" and want to participate in building the resilience of our community. We call our special place "Niwamori BFF Nara Japan" and we aim to make it a permaculture hub and biodiversity refuge in Nara city. We will do some gardening activities, talk about how the plants communicate and how to build a healthy soil. You can go at your own rhythm. Relax, enjoy the nature and let the garden "zenify" your soul. At the end of the session, you'll be able to pick your own organic, seasonal lunch. We are eating this way for the last two years and trust us, it's the tastiest meals we ever had in our lives. Nothing beats a fresh, slow growing, nutrient packed, home grown veggie. So, what do you say, you'd like to try gardening with us for a few hours? Jump in! Other things to note You do not need to have experience gardening to join this program. Please bring extra clothes to change into and wear shoes that can survive a little dirt. From May to October there are mosquitoes in the field. We recommended to come in long sleeves and long pants.
