YOUR HOST

Michico SHIMONO

My name is Shimono Michico, and together with Ms. Kimata Tomoko, we offer a fun and creative kanzashi-making workshop near Ginkaku-ji (Silver Temple) in Kyoto city. Kanzashi are first mentioned in the cultural traditions of Japan during the Meiji era, so learning to make them also gives you a real historical connection! I started making traditional Japanese kanzashi hair ornaments about 10 years ago. It was my grandchild’s Shichi-Go-San celebration (a celebration of children aged 3, 5, and 7 years old), and I just couldn’t find any ready-made ones that I liked, soI started making them myself!

WHAT TO EXPECT

Japanese hair ornaments are extremely popular souvenirs among visitors to Japan. Rather than buy one, though, why not learn to create your own? Learn to turn small scraps of your favourite fabrics into gorgeous one-of-a-kind kanzashi to take home with you, or to give as gifts! You are only limited by your imagination in this wonderful 90-minute workshop. You will have a wonderful time learning a traditional Japanese handicraft, and feel an enormous sense of accomplishment when someone comments on the beauty of the unique handmade ornament that you made yourself! Fun for young and old alike, you will come away with a skill that can turn any piece of cloth into an object of art and admiration. What better way is there to remember your trip to Kyoto, than with your own, hand-crafted keepsake?

  • First, meet your host at the store!
