Photoblog: Deko Yashiki Village Folk Crafts

I visited Deko Yashiki for the first time ever yesterday. I don’t know why it has taken so long for me to go!

Deko Yashiki is a collection of 4 houses (and families) who have been making local crafts for hundreds of years.

You can visit their workshops, learn about folk legends and beliefs, and try out painting your own Miharu Koma horse – the craft that made the area famous.

I’ll write about this amazing place in more detail next week, but for the meantime, please enjoy some of the photos I took there!
