About your host

My partner and I welcome you. Her name is Izumi Uchiyama who has been sewing a kimono for 14 years, and began to teach sewing a kimono 10 years ago. She would like more people to know Japanese traditional skills that have becom less common. When doing a kimono sewing workshop, people, from children to adults, taking needles in hands, they all are infatuated.

What we’ll do

When you come to our place, we put a Japanese simple coat on you. First you see the demonstration of sewing a kimono. Then you can experience doing a UNSHIN (basic kimono sewing technique) by yourselves and make a Japanese little accessory. If you don't like to use a needle, we practice to tighten a Japanese twisting headband with using a Japanese towel together. Then we all together discuss…

What else you should know

You don't have to bring anything special. If you don't want to sew, you can practice together how to use Japanese traditional towel that we prepare. So you don't have to worry about it too.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
After the experience, we will serve you some refreshments with ingredients natural and traditional as much as we can.
Drinks
After the experience, we all together discuss Japanese Youkai and the kimono taking some drink.
Equipment
Materials that you need for making a Japanese little accessory. You can bring the accessory you made with you.

Where you'll be

Our place was built about 80 yeas ago. It remains atmosphere of the good old days in Tokyo. We recommend you come here after visiting The Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum which is close to our place. In The Museum you can enjoy to watch historic buildings but cannot get into. In our place, you can get into the house which has similar feeling as buildings of The Museum. You can experience sewing a kimono there.
