Plan description

[Regional common coupon (electronic only) is available! ] It is an experience to make the traditional craft "Chinkoro" that is handed down in Tokamachi. [What is "Chinkoro"? ] "Chinkoro", which every Tokamachi citizen has made, is a colorful and small doll made of rice flour. The word chinkoro means "puppy" and is often made to imitate a puppy or the zodiac of the year. It is made around January every year and is displayed at home, but since it is made of rice flour paste, it breaks and breaks in a few weeks. It is said that the more broken pieces there are, the better the auspiciousness. It is said that the culture of making chinkoro started in the Edo period, but the original origin is not well understood. [What you can do with this experience] In this program, you will make traditional crafts of Tokamachi while being taught by local masters of making chinkoro. Instead of sticking to traditional puppies and zodiac signs, you can make your own original puppies such as anime characters, mascots, and animals. It is an experience that anyone, regardless of age or gender, can enjoy. Please make a souvenir of the lucky charm.

You can experience traditional crafts unique to Tokamachi

Anyone from children to adults can enjoy

You can make a lucky gift as a souvenir on New Year's Day
