What you'll do

First, I will show you my wide selection of fabrics, so please choose your favorites to make your original temple stamp book which is called goshuin notebook. I will teach you how to make a goshuin notebook the proper way, by folding and glueing papers together. It is very popular to collect goshuin stamps in goshuin notebooks in Japan—each temple and shrine has its own stamp, and it will be great memory of your visit to collect them. There are many temples and shrines nearby, and I will give you the locations of them if you wish. I hope you will enjoy this traditional cultural experience at my workshop. I know that time is precious while traveling. That's why I have classes available in other locations, depending on where you are staying—Shibuya, Ginza, Roppongi

I am an award-winning artist and creator in various fields, I have loved Japanese culture since I was a child. I am a professional makeup artist, aromatherapist, color therapist, pasta artist, and the head and owner of a goshuin club. I love fabrics, and I have a passion for teaching about beautiful goshuin notebooks to people all over the world. I feel happiness when I see the smiling faces of guests when they finish making their lovely goshuin notebook. I hope my guests will love the beautiful fabric of the traditional Japanese designs.

We had a great time with Chikako! We made our own personal Goshuin and afterwards we visited the nearest shrine to pray and get our first stamp and caligraphy. We had lots of fun and Chikako made us feel welcome at the shrine. This experience changed our visit to Japan, as we were visetting lots of shrines and temples which we wouldn't have done without her! 10/10 would recommend.

Все было замечательно! Чикако объясняла и показывала очень просто - что помогло нам быстрее понять, как все правильно делать. Была дружелюбная обстановка, помимо впечатления мы узнали много нового о Японии, в особенности о Токио; и как правильно вести себя в храмах) спасибо Чикако за клевый опыт!

I had a wonderful time making a temple stamp book with Chikako! She taught me about the culture and traditions behind the books, and made me appreciate the many shrines and temples in Tokyo so much more. Truly a one of a kind experience, and definitely the highlight of my trip to Japan. Thank you so much!

I had so much fun making my temple stamp book with Chikako. She and her assistant Akihiro were so helpful and encouraging. Chikako was also thoughtful enough to come meet me at a subway station near my hotel and show me to her studio herself so I wouldn't get lost. I mentioned that I have a sister and Akihiro was kind enough to give me an extra stamp book he'd made to pass along to my sister.
