Experience Traditional Japanese Crafts at the Crafts Studio Village

The Crafts Studio Village is a facility in which you can experience the traditional crafts of garment weaving, indigo dyeing, paper making, pottery making and wood bamboo crafting in Aikawa Town’s prefectural Aikawa Park. You can try out activites that you would usually not get the opportunity to try, such as garment weaving and using a potter's wheel in order to create your own original items. It is a fun way to learn about the history of traditional crafts.
