Information

Japan House is excited to be welcoming three Japanese craftsmen the week of January 9, 2017. Yoshiaki Kagami, owner of Tatamiyi Dojo, in Yagamata, Japan, and two of his craftsmen, Yuichi Yoshino and Takuya Nakashima, will be working next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to replace the covering of our now 18 year old tatami mats.

Please join us for a presentation on the craft of tatami, a demonstration of utilizing the old tatami mats for new items, and a chance to see the brand new tatami mats. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers as well.

We are thrilled to start our year with these fine craftsmen. We hope you join us!

Free and open to all.
