We had a special guest from one of the largest inbound tourism platforms called ‘MATCHA’! The Romanian editor had an experience of ‘Bamboo Basket Making’ at our hotel in Kyoto!
The skilled and awarded craftsman in our local area gave her a lecture about how to make a bamboo basket by hand. With a help of language interpreter (if necessary), he explained the process and technique.
Bamboo seems hard to handle, but it has a flexibility so that the finished basket is elegant and beautiful.
‘It’s amazing to see the hard bamboo has turned into such an elegant basket!”
The editor said, appreciating the craftsmanship.
Also, our local craftsman said,
‘It was a wonderful opportunity for me to meet a new person who is interested in Japanese traditional culture.’
Our hotel, Discover Kyoto Nagaokakyo, is hoping to be a place where local craftsmen and tourists enjoy the interaction with each other.
In order to be so, we will keep providing Japanese traditional programs. Keep your eyes on us!
