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!

Where you'll be
The class is situated in "Naramachi", the historic area within the ancient precinct of Gangoji Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site! Gangoji was the first Buddhist temple in Japan, but most of the buildings were destroyed in a big fire in 1451. After that, people began to build houses in this area and it became a town of merchants. Why not enjoy even a short promenade and shopping around this historic area after or before the class?
