Thank you for staying with us here at TGK!
As a part of attraction during your stay in Yamashina, we offer some must-do experiences you may interested in.

Kyoto Traditional Painting

Coloring experience combining two traditional techniques of Kyoto: Yuzen-zome and Tarashikomi.

Yuzen-zome, or Yuzen-dying was invented by a fun painter Miyazaki Yuzen. His technique features drawing starch frames on silk fabric. The line prevents the color from going over another lines, which allows you to color directly in those lines.

TARASHIKOMI is another style used for Japanese painting. Inventor is Tawaraya Sotatsu who lived in around 15th to 16th century. His famous piece is Fujin-Raijin-zu byobu, translated into wind god and thunder god on the screen. He used his style depicting the clouds under Rraijin. Doing this he presented the natural gradations and intensity of colors.

In this experience, you are provided with a pre-drawn shikishi paper board and color it with pigment produced by Ueba-eso. Ueba-eso has a long history of more than 270 years, keeping Japanese traditional colors since 1751.
