What Our Customers Say

Kanazawa Half day Artisan Tour with Reiko

It was a special experience to get a chance to speak with the 11th generation Master Ohi Chozaemon Toshio and have a personal introduction to his and his family's art in the Ohiyaki museum! We had the rare opportunity to have matcha using his bowls in his tea room. Afterwards, Reiko gave a comprehensive tour of Kenrokuen and Kanazawa Castle. Reiko highlighted a lot of points that we otherwise would not have known and made the tour lighthearted and entertaining. She helped take photos of us along the way too!
