What you'll do

Gourd lamp workshop is from 11:30 to 13:30 held in Japanese Restaurant called KUJO TOKYO in Yanaka. Curve a small gourd about 10cm high and put led light in its bottom. Then, bring it back to your country. Either you can draw your own design on it or just curve a draft. All tools are prepared. The time you are curving a gourd is just like meditation because of its concentration. After that workshop, lunch is prepared. Please enjoy typical Japanese style lunch. Lunch time is from 13:30 to 14:30. We can take you to a walk after the program if you would like to hang around the downtown in Yanaka.

I am an artist of gourd lamp and teach how to make a gourd lamp. I hold workshop in cafe, public rental rooms, and various places throughout the country on weekends. Also, lighting my gourd lamps at music live,etc. I sell custom-made gourd lamps.
I've raised gourds in my farm since 2017. It means a lot for me to use the gourds raised by myself for my workshop. Because I raise them by myself, I get to know more about gourds and I can teach my students how to handle them well. Moreover, the home-made gourds are just adorable. During the workshop, you will concentrate on your work so much that it is just like meditation. After all, you will get both beautiful your original gourd lamp and much satisfaction. Don't worry, if you're worried about designing, I will help you to draw the design on a gourd.

After picking me up at the station, Fumie-san offered me gourds to choose from and walked me patiently through the process of transforming one into a lamp to create my own souvenir. We talked over the meal, which was lovely, and they were even able to cater to a vegetarian. Overall, it was an informative and truly unique experience!
