In Asakusa, the major tourist attraction in Japan, you can easily enjoy making accessories with Tsumami-Zaiku. Tsumami-Zaiku is a traditional craft made from small pieces of cloth called Chirimen (the silk fabric with unique irregularities on the surface used for high-quality kimonos). They use special tweezers to pinch and fold the pieces of Chirimen and shape them into various items.
Tsumami-Zaiku corresponds to various styles, from traditional kimono decoration to modern design. It is still popular among ladies as a gorgeous accessory.
First, the staff will introduce the actual work along with the history of Tsumami-Zaiku. When you decide what you will make, please choose the materials you like. There are accessory bases for hairpins, 'obidome' (sash decoration), earrings and piercings. Once the materials are chosen, you are ready to make your own accessory. The staff will carefully explain how to fold the cloth. Use your imagination and make your own design!
Lastly, the staff will help you take a commemorative photo in an authentic Japanese-style room. Please bring your camera for the photo.
