Connecting travelers with the local community — Learning about local traditional crafts and culture
We regularly offer “koto-experience” services that allow guests to explore the traditional culture of the region, connecting travelers with the local community and making their travels all the more enjoyable through experiences that expose them to the traditional culture and values unique to the region.
We offer workshops such as making bracelets with Izumi Tombodama (glass beads), a traditional craft product of Osaka.
We provide handmade kits for making traditional, cultural crafts that you can try at any time during your stay or at home. We recommend these as a souvenir or a memento of your trip in discovering the charms of Osaka. You can try it at your convenience.
