TW is teaming up with JAPAN RAIL CAFE TOKYO to bring you the best of Tohoku. This month, join Tohoku Ambassador and TW Senior Editor Lisa Wallin and fellow readers for a one-hour session to learn about one of the region’s six prefectures. Each session will include a hands-on experience, and every participant will receive a goodie bag to take home.
Home to delicious sake, Japanese castles and more, Fukushima never ceases to surprise us. In this session, we invite participants to paint their very own okiagari-koboshi doll. Okiagari-koboshi are small, egg-shaped dolls made of papier-mâché. Their unique shape makes it so that they will never topple over. They are considered a good-luck charm in many parts of Japan. Gifts for this event include Fukushima peach juice, traditional sweets, local sake and a Kitakata ramen pack.
To join us, make sure to register here. (Please only sign up for one event)
