[Temporarily closing]Odawara Paper Lantern Making

To prevent the spread of coronavirus disease COVID-19, this event has been temporarily suspended.
Please check in advance about resumption with organizer, the official website, etc.


In this workshop, you make Odawara Paper Lanterns in an ancient building that used to house a fish-net wholesale store dating back to 1932.
Odawara Lanterns are accordion paper lanterns that are mentioned in the children’s song, “Osaru No Kagoya” (“monkey rickshaw”).
Draw pictures or letters on a piece of Japanese paper, and paste it onto a framework made of thin bamboo sticks. Adults can make one lantern in about 90 minutes.
Wouldn’t you like to make an original paper lantern for the memory of the travel?

※ More than 10 people need in case of and preliminary reservation.
