Description of plan

Let's enjoy a special time at Daisho-in which is considered to be the oldest temple in Miyajima of Aki.​ ​
In this lesson you will paint Japanese folk toy "Maneki-neko" made of papier-mache and color a picture of "Momijitani Park 4 Seasons".​ ​

Papier-mache toys are made of paper pulp or shreds of paper molded into various shapes and colored. They became widely popular during the Edo period.​ ​
"Maneki-neko" is a figurine of a cat beckoning with an upright paw, which is often believed to bring good luck and loved to this day.​ ​
​ ​White papier-mache maneki-neko will be given and you can paint it to your liking.​ ​
Let's make your original maneki-neko, only one in the world.​ ​

After finishing your maneki-neko painting, we will start coloring of a picture of Momijitani Park, a famous spot of Miyajima.​ ​​ ​
These handmade picture and a maneki-neko can be taken home as a memorabilia.
The event will be held either at Daisho-in Hall where you can enjoy a panoramic sea view or at Shoseian Hall located in the Japanese garden.
