Rice is a staple of the Japanese diet and most Japanese have a favorite rice bowl. Join us in Kamakura, at a ceramics artist studio for a special creative ceramics class experience. During this class, you will make your own rice bowl using a mold, as well as a chopstick rest. You will be ready to enjoy your Japanese-style meal with your own rice bowl and chopstick rest! Tea time with the artist will follow after the experience. You will have the opportunity to spend extra time with the artist and find out even more about Japanese ceramics. Once your bowl and the chopstick rest are dried and fired, we will be sending them to you. Use your time in quaint and historical Kamakura not only for sightseeing and visiting its numerous shrines and temples. Sign up for our ceramics class experience, learn about Japanese pottery and secure a wonderful souvenir for yourself, family member or a friend.
