During the summer, the following classes are offered:

  • separate pottery and dying classes every Monday and 2nd and 4th Sundays from 10 am to 3 pm
  • knitting every Monday and 1st and 3rd Tuesdays from 10 am to 3 pm
  • weaving every Thursday from 10 am to 4 pm
  • bamboo and straw crafts every Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm (by reservation only)

  • ikebana flower arranging every 1st and 3rd Saturday from 1 to 4 pm, with cost of flowers added on

For more information, call 47-5122. Yukari no Mori is also a great place for camping, picnics and other get togethers. Fees are reasonable, and there is also a very interesting insect museum.
