Featured in the movie Your Name (Kimi no Na Wa) where the main characters wore Kumihimo braids as accessories, "Kano Musubi" is a knotting method of famous Kumihimo braids. "Kano Musubi" forms the shape of Chinese character "叶" which means that a wish comes true. Having such a lovely meaning, "Kano Musubi" is often used to close the opening of amulet cases given at the shrines. Select two colors each for you braid and stone. After completion, you can use it as a bag ornament or a key chain. As our cheerful staff will guide you carefully, beginners are welcome as well!
