Furoshiki - wrapping cloth

Furoshiki is a scarf-like square cloth with many kinds of designs used for wrapping and carrying things.
It can be used to wrap several small goods together or wrap one bulky item, like a wine bottle.
It can also be folded up and easily carried when not in use, and can just be washed like other cloths when they get dirty.
Please come and enjoy wrapping!

Japanese Toys

We have prepared some kinds of Japanese traditional toys.
Let us give you some examples.
Kendama, Koma - spinning top - , and Taketombo - a simple helicopter-like bamboo toy -, You might know.


Fukuwarai is a game similar to "pin the tail on the donkey". The Player wears a blindfold and then place paper cutouts in the shape of the eyes, nose, and mouth on face. It is so funny when someone make a strange face.


Darumaotoshi is the one you play with a daruma dool which has a head and some discs. You hit carefully only a disc one by one, or all the daruma will fall down!

It will be good refreshing for you.

Sado - Japanese Tea Ceremony

Japanese tea ceremony is a formal occasion where "matcha (green tea)" tea is prepared and served to guests in a fixed and traditional way.
But this time, the main idea is to enjoy tea and sweets with nice conversation.
