Story & Recommendation
Learn about traditional Japanese crafts at Kyoto Experiences Waraku located close to Sanjusangen-do Temple
Sanjusangen-do is a very famous temple in Kyoto, and close to it, you can find a place called Kyoto Experiences Waraku, located in a 118-year old machiya townhouse. Here you can learn about two different kinds of yuzen dyeing techniques, one with gold leaf, and you can also learn how to make earrings from Japanese paper. On the first floor, they have all kinds of crafts on sale, making the shop look like a small art museum. The second floor is where you get to learn how to make these crafts, you get to sit on a tatami mat, enjoy the wind coming in from the windows, and the calm of the surrounding temples. Just relax. They also have Taiwanese staff who can speak English and Chinese, so the instructions here are easy to understand even to absolute beginners. Do you want to have a different kind of experience in Kyoto? Then you should head to Kyoto Experiences Waraku!
