Ikkan-bari is a traditional craft in which washi paper is stretched over bamboo baskets and wooden objects, and then coated with “kakishibu” (persimmon tannin used for strength and protection against water). At Atelier Sennichiko, you can try ikkan-bari using authentic washi paper, or old kimono cloth.

*The "Making a "Ikkan-bari" Basket Bag" experience program requires 2 sessions to complete. Participants will bring home a one-of-a-kind item.

・Schedule: Session 1: 10:00-15:00 // Session 2: 10:00-12:00
