Strolling the Castle Town of Nakatsu and Making a Table Lantern Using the Technique for Japanese Umbrella Making

Nakatsu is known for traditional umbrella making. Utilizing the technique for it, which is the ultimate craft of the combination between bamboo and paper, why don’t you try making a table lantern by yourself? An experienced craftman will teach you step by step. You can rent a Japanese umbrella for free while walking around the temple town. A beautiful basket lunch at a Japanese restaurant Bimi Sosho “Shuka” is included.

Wagasa Kobo (Japanese Umbrella Workshop) Shuka

Facing the closure of Japanese umbrella making at Nakatsu due to the aging of the craftsmen and the lack of successors, we founded "Wagasa Kobo (Japanese Umbrella Workshop) Shuka" to revitalize the traditional craft in this castle town.
