Experience the traditional wood-making craft of Kumiko in Kanuma

Experience the traditional wood-making craft of Kumiko in Kanuma. Kanuma Kumiko, designs made with strips of wood, is found in a traditional Japanese room. Because no nails are used in assembling the 1-5mm strips of wood which make up various designs, it requires traditional and very delicate skills. Visitors can try their hand at making coasters while learning about the techniques and designs of Kanuma Kumiko used mainly for Shoji (traditional Japanese screens and sliding doors) and interior furnitures.

Central Area

Utsunomiya, the most populous city in Tochigi, is about an hour from Tokyo by Shinkansen, and serves as a major transportation hub for the different regions of the prefecture. In addition to being known for its famous Gyoza (pan-fried dumplings), Utsunomiya is called the “city of jazz and cocktails”, as there are numerous venues for hearing live jazz music, and the bartenders are quite skilled, so there are plenty of options for enjoyable nightlife.
