Water Calligraphy – DIY activity

April 3 – 21

Unleash your calligraphy talent with our magic canvas board! Since you will paint with water, you can express your artistry without the fear of ink mess. However, your masterpiece will vanish in 10 minutes, so make sure to take a photo while it lasts!

Samurai Armour Display

Until the end of May

We acquired a life size set of ōyoroi (great harness). The set consists of several segments such as a chest protector, shoulder guards, a protective apron, shin guards and a helmet with decorative antlers, and they are joined by cords woven of coloured threads. Come, have a closer look at the armour displayed in the reception area.
