We held an event on December 3rd at Furukawacho shopping street, one of the most historical shopping street in Kyoto. We gathered at “Furukawashuzo” located at the middle of the shopping street first, and enjoyed exploring around the area.
We enjoyed shopping streets and also beautiful spots around, such as Ippon-bashi, a historical bridge made of stone.
After the walking tour, we learned from a craftsman from “Tsuneshin(常真)” about knife. He told us how to choose knife that suite you, stone to sharpen, how to take care of it and more! Participants were surprised to see that with the knife after he sharpen we can slice the tomato as thin as we can see through!
Also, learned from craftsman from “Kitade(北出金網店)” each participant made own tool for simmered tofu. We were so concentrated for one hour and half! With Mr. Kitade’s help, all of us succeeded to make and we enjoyed simmered tofu party with own tool afterwards!
