ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productYou can experience one-and-a-half to two hours of pottery making. In spring (April, May, and June), in flowering season in Japan, you will create a flower shaped bowl called Rinka-bachi. It is a very photogenic form that is great for serving colorful dishes and even for arranging flowers. We will fire the pottery and send you your work afterward. After the pottery making, we will invite you to enjoy the atmosphere and reflect on yourself with handmade Japanese wagashi sweets and freshly whisked matcha tea prepared by a local wagashi artist.Duration: 2 hoursLocation: Takara no Niwa, Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, Kanto
