Please come join us to make your own personal pair of chopsticks at Shamisen (Japanese musical instrument) studio. You will learn how to shape and polish them to be just for you ( of course you can bring them back to your home!) The reason why this will be held at instrument shop is because the wooden material is used for Shamisen, and also shaping and polishing skill is very first step to be a professional shamisen craftsman. You can also watch how craftsman make Shamisen in a traditional way.
It was my very first time to experience chopstick making, but it was fun! Not only the workshop, I could see Shamisen makers sincere work just in front of me! It must be rare chance to do both of them.
