YOUR HOST

Yusuke ISHIHARA

Hello, my name is Ishihara Yusuke. I live in Izumisano City located in Osaka Prefecture, in Kansai region of Japan. I have a bright personality, I love to entertain people, and I would like to pass on some knowledge of Japanese tradition to you. I am the owner of Ishihara Gofuku shop, a Kimono shop that has been running for 3 generations. If you have any questions about Kimono, please ask, I would be more than happy to answer any questions for you. Also, through this cloth dyeing workshop experience, I hope that you will be able to learn more about Kimono culture, and Japanese culture. Other than Kimono, I also have a passion for Lacrosse, and on the weekends I am a lacrosse coach, I also love to relax my mind and body at a ‘Super-Sento’ public bath. I also like to visit some of the cafes around my area, as I have started to acquire a taste for coffee these days. If you ever have a chance to visit Izumisano City, please come by my place!
