SAKURA Experience Japanese Culture in Kyoto Japan
6th Floor of the KUS Building, Kawaramachi Street between Oike and Sanjo Streets, opposite the Catholic Church
Address: 〒604-8006 Kyoto, Nakagyo Ward, Shimomaruyacho, 408番地 KUS河原町6F
Aya, the teacher taught me flower arrangement and dressed me up in a kimono. She was so professional , warm and welcoming. She and her husband teach many other courses as well like calligraphy, origami, tea, etc. suggest you call and check with them for customized options. Rates are reasonable and totally worth it.
I ended up creating a pretty neat arrangement and understanding the philosophy of Japanese flower arrangement. Loved it and loved Aya, highly recommended.
My daughter and I attended a cooking experience at Sakura. Aya Ito, the owner, and her rock n’ roll husband, were so charming, and we thoroughly enjoyed the hands-on experience of making traditional Japanese street-style food. Getting dressed in traditional Japanese garb was an extra bonus! We could not have asked for more, and we left with a certificate of completion plus recipes. Sakura Experience Japan Culture was definitely a highlight of our trip!
