Creative House is pleased to announce a new location, as well as an increase in staff and services. We are continuing most of our former programs, including art classes for kids on Saturdays (up to 10 kids, 3-5 pm, 5000 yen/month) and private art therapy sessions in both English and Japanese.
For those of you not familiar with art therapy, it is a process of creating imagery as a way of learning more about yourself. Art skills are NOT necessary, even pounding clay or splashing paints are sufficient "skills" to elicit the necessary imagery. Through the art making process, you can take a look into your inner world and talk about it with a non-judgmental person.
In addition to art therapy, we now have a counselor for the Japanese-speaking population, Mr. Keiichi Endo, who works on Saturdays. Another staff member, Ms. Kurimoto, just finished an aroma therapy course, and so those interested in this can come in for private consultations (30 min. for just ｴ1000) or join a group class on ways to use essential oils in your everyday life. Creative House also has a full-time secretary now. Ms. Sagisaka will take your calls in perfect Japanese and fairly good English.
Our new phone number is 55-4444, and our address is Hanamuro 1463-1, just east of Azuma 4-chome. To get there from the center of Tsukuba, travel east on Tsuchiura-Gakuen Sen and turn left at the first light east of Higashi Odori. About half way up to the first light on that street, there is a narrow road to the right. Take that road and turn left at the first road (across from Masuyama Haitsu apartments). We're the first house on the left.
Please call before visiting to find out when it is okay to drop by and to make sure you know how to get there. Because we must protect the privacy of those in therapy or counseling, we cannot receive any unexpected guests.
The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world. We hold a monthly potluck dinner where we exchange information about the local community while eating a variety of foods. No reservation is needed to attend the potluck. Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
