An event where you can learn about traditional Japanese culture while enjoying life in a kimono more casually <Tokyo/Osaka: free admission)
Ginza Ichiri, a casual kimono specialty store that ships directly from the production area, will hold the Kimono EXPO, an event where you can casually experience the splendor and enjoyment of Japanese craftsmanship .
In this event, starting with the popular "Japanese workshop" , there will be a "talk session" where artists and workshops from all over Japan will convey the charm of kimono, a "production area workshop experience" where you can actually experience traditional techniques, and your worries about kimono. We have prepared a variety of contents that can be enjoyed by a wide range of people, from those who are interested in traditional Japanese culture to kimono experts, such as "Kimono Clinic" to solve. Of course, there are plenty of bargains too!
Perfect for autumn outings for art and leisure! Please take this opportunity to enjoy the profound world of kimono.
