Provide fantastic and inspiring courses by Japanese artisans, who hold the highest regards for their craftsmanship and pursuit of perfection. As a learner, these classes, though challenging, are eye-openers and totally enjoyable!

a month ago Great place to learn the skills of leather hand crafting. They bring in knowledgeable and experienced instructors from overseas, who are willing to share their special techniques with the students. For example, Misawa and Tsunoo have individually over 20 years of experience. The staff are friendly and willing to go the extra mile for the students, such as opening the classroom for the students to complete their crafting. The place is conducive for learning, with the tools and equipment required for the lessons.
