Our Feel Japan events are a fun, interactive way to get to know the many Japanese prefectures without leaving Tokyo. Earlier this year, we held a special event completely dedicated to Miyazaki. This June, we’re taking you back to Kyushu to discover Saga, Nagasaki and Oita. 

We are preparing four sessions focusing on a different prefecture or city in Kyushu. In each session, participants will get the chance to learn more history, regional culture and cuisine through an interactive presentation. Then, participants can taste a variety of sake from the prefecture or city. 

But everybody’s favorite part is the hands-on workshop. Each session will offer participants a chance to try their hand at a regional craft and take home their creations. Those interested in learning more about Nagasaki crafts will try candle painting. Those attending our Hit city session will create a sachet from wood shavings, one of Hita’s top exports. 

Each session will be broken down as follows:

  • Nagasaki Prefecture: Sat, Jun 18 from 1–2:30pm
  • Saga Prefecture: Sat, Jun 18 from 3:30–5pm
  • Taketa city (Oita): Sun, Jun 19 from 1–2:30pm
  • Hita city (Oita): Sun, Jun 19 from 3:30–5pm

As with all our events, participants get to go with a bag of goodies to take home. Participation is free but advanced registration is required.
