Let us introduce you to the craftspeople of Miyajima
InsideJapan can arrange to introduce you to Miyajima's talented locals. Woodcrafts have been practiced on the island for over 150 years - so visit a carpentry workshop for a hands on lesson in carving shakushi rice paddles or warm wooden bowls. We can also arrange collaborative hands-on experiences with island-based potters and the makers of papier-mâché masks, used in Miyajima's festivals.

Important notice: We are pleased to be able to offer so many amazing experiences in Japan. However, we are sorry that we can only include these as a part of a full Japan holiday package which includes your accommodation and transport alongside the experiences presented in this section of the web site.
