About Mediator
Available to offer experiences of playing Japanese traditional music instrumental "Koto" as well as making a cup of ceremonial tea with wearing Kimono.(The size of Kimono is limited, since the variety of furnished items are limited. If the guest brought Kimono on her/his own, then I can help wearing the Kimono. For formal Kimono, some specific parts are highly required. So, in case of wearing Kimono experience, arrangement beforehand is necessary.) I have certificates of Koto and Tea ceremony. In addition, my father who lives in my hometown is a teacher of tea ceremony and flower arrangement. It depends on the date though, accommodating for your shopping of Japanese goods including Kimono and tea ceremony tools are also available. I used to work as a sales clerk of female clothes in expensive price range as well as art, I can give advices on the items. Since I have no car with me, trains or buses would be the transportation for traveling to somewhere from my place. I am a certified interpreter guide in English who has knowledge of interior and architecture, since I am a certified interior coordinator graduated from architectural course.
