YOUR HOST

Masanari MUKOYAMA

Hi, I’m Mukoyama. I started being passionate about the Shamisen and the traditional Japanese music when I was very young and now, making them has been my speciality for many years. In order to train in the art of bending and straightening, cutting and handling delicate pieces of wood it is customary to make chopsticks. Would you like to try to make some together ?

WHAT TO EXPECT

Experience Japanese craftsmanship first hand! You'll learn about Japanese woodworking and traditional instruments and even get to make your own chopsticks. This tour will take you into the world of Japanese woodworking, learning about chopsticks, plus the Shamisen, and other traditional Japanese instruments. Why chopsticks? In Japan, learning to make chopsticks is the first step in training to craft a musical instrument. You may have heard or even seen Japanese instruments before, but with this trip you’ll take an up close look at how they’re produced by the hands of professional artisans.
