Experience hosted by Michiko And Toshiko

2 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 5 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Guest will choose 20 to 30 favorite stones out of more than 80 kinds, either according to design or color coordination sense, or type of wish to achieve, then complete into an only-one bracelet in the world!

Even in ancient Japan, it had been believed mystic power dwells in natural stones, and people were familiar with jade and crystal which had been used at rituals or for ornaments.

Each stone has its own meaning or belief of fortune such as fortune of health, love, career, etc.,

Choosing stones itself is really a fun! For sure, you will be excited seeing the more than 80 availability of stones and may not be quickly able to narrow the selection to 20-30 stones!

When stone-selection is finished, then reflect on what may be the best design of stone arrangement orders! However, again be careful about the temptation for redoing the selection!

After the possible repeating between selection, designing, and arranging, finally you decide to put the stones through the thread, cement the end, and Ta-da! You get the only-one bracelet of your own!

At anytime Toshiko or Michiko will help you out, but basic concept of DIY and availability of 80 kinds are unique feature of our class!
Other things to note
Duration of making will be 2hours, which we think is enough for you to spare longer time for selecting stones. However, if you are in a hurry, we can do time keeping to shorter the whole process.

Why not enjoy even a short promenade and shopping around this historic area after or before the class?

Not only did I have fun with making my bracelet, I had an amazing time chatting and learning! I had messaged to ask for a time slot, and they were kind enough to make a time for my group. When we showed up, they had translated rock names and meanings into English, and even had a local translator just in case!! Making out bracelets was the most fun we had on our Japan trip!!! Thank you so much!!

An outstanding Airbnb experience with wonderful hosts - Michiko reminds me of my obachan back home - very warm and cute, caring. Really enjoyed the atmosphere + translation was available (English was best I have encountered in 4 weeks in Japan) and hosts were extremely attentive to needs + explanations on symbols/meaning behind the different types of stones (eg. success in work, relationship, spiritual). Would also note there are sooo many kinds to choose from - a whole table full I am sure that everybody would be able to find many that are suitable to your taste / colors / meaning. Highly recommended A+++ and THANK YOU to my hosts!!!
