BT0020 Matsushima Town

Learning about Traditional Japanese Culture and the Culture of Disaster in a Kimono (Rental Kimono and Souvenir Furoshiki)

Contents/ Itinerary for BOSAI Tourism

Participants will enjoy wearing a kimono ー the traditional attire of Japan ー and study about Japanese culture and the "disaster culture" of Matsushima, as well as other areas of Tohoku.
Participants can choose the kimono they wish to wear from over 100 options. Staff are on hand to help the decision, as well as help to put it on. Once the participants are immersed in Japanese culture body and soul, the program begins with a Furoshiki workshop. A Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth and can be used in a wide variety of stylish ways, such as using as a bag or wrapping bottles. This program will also introduce the various ways a Furoshiki can be used in the event of a disaster. (You can take the Furoshiki home as a souvenir.)
Participants can enjoy walking around Matsushima in the kimono after the workshop (until 5:00 pm).

What we want to tell through the experiences of BOSAI Tourism Contents

We hope participants will become familiar with Japan and enjoy the beauty of Matsushima while wearing Kimono which is the spirit of Japanese culture. We also want to let participants know just how useful the traditional Japanese Furoshiki wrapping cloth is in a disaster or when traveling.
