Wheel Throwing Course

Quick course: It takes approx.20 minutes and costs 2,000 yen for making a rice bowl or a Japanese tea cup.
If you have time,a normal course (approx.30 – 60 minutes 5,000yen) is also recommended. You can make a vase or two accessories like a sake cup and a tea cup. *All prices are excluding tax.


The trial lesson begins after putting on a rental apron. At first, an artisan shows you an example.
