Without Yanagiu Washi Paper, a traditional craft unique to Sendai, there would be no Tanabata Festival! Learn about the importance and characteristics of Yanagiu then make a lampshade made using the special paper. You’ll be surrounded by Tanabata festival decorations inside the Tanabata Museum, so this will be a magical hands-on and visual experience!
The lampshade is made from a kit, so children and adults can make it without too much difficulty.
Come and experience something you can only do in Sendai!
