Experience Details
You’ll cut and sand bamboo to make your own unique personal bamboo cup. Afterwards, you can sit surrounded by nature as you drink coffee from your newly-created cup. On cold days, you’ll drink coffee indoors seated cozily at a warm kotatsu table and play with cute cats.

Here is the flow of the event:
Once you arrive at the station, you will take a taxi to Kawabe’s house. Kawabe’s house is a traditional Japanese house, built 130 years ago, located in the mountains of Marumori away from populated areas, where Kawabe lives peacefully. After introductions and safety instructions, Kawabe will show you how to cut the bamboo. Then you can take turns cutting the bamboo to make your cups. Once the cups are cut, then Kawabe will demonstrate how to use a sander to smooth the edges of the cup. Once the cups are done, Kawabe will wash the cups and prepare coffee for everyone. This is time for you to relax. If you want, you might be able to play with the cats! Once you finish your coffee, we will heat and polish the cups to give them a nice finish. Make sure to let them sit out and dry overnight!
At the end of the experience you will take a taxi back to the station.
