Meet the local craftsmen! Shichihonmatsu craft market
「七本松陶器市」=Shichihonmatsu pottery market is one of the biggest indoor craft market in summer in Kyoto. 【Where is Kyoto Research Park "Atrium"?】 Kyoto research park is located near JR Tanbaguchi station (one stop away from JR Kyoto station.) It is a business area of Kyoto where there are many office buildings. "Atrium" is a big inside hall in Kyoto Research Park. 【Who will be there?】 A group of young craftsman (mainly potters from Kyoto) are displaying and selling their items. 【What's awesome about this craft market】 ●It is an indoor market! Stay away from heat and rain! Chill and enjoy your Saturday evening! ●Communicate with a lot of young craftsmen! It is a great opportunity to shop directly from craftsmen. Normally, craftsmen of Kyoto are staying inside their studios and you don't really see them. Don't just shop! Enjoy communicating with them! ●Outlet and special price items are available. Interested in Kyoto's traditional craft? Then start from buying a little sake cup which you can buy for less than 1000 yen. A lot of items are not too expensive and affordable. Spend less than 1,000 yen and you are already supporting the local craftsmen's businesses! ●The market is like the showcase of Kyoto's traditional crafts by young craftsmen. Not just pottery, bamboo crafts, textiles, metal crafts and more are all there. Since this is the craft market by young craftsmen, you will see the traditional craft with fresh and modern twist. ★optional: 【Workshops】 If you want to try workshop by craftsmen, there are some options. ◆Bamboo basket making workshop...30-60 min 4,000 yen ◆Metal ring or bracelet workshop... 30-45 min 2,500~3,000 yen 【Tea time?】 Finished shopping? Yuki (the organizer of this meetup) will serve a cup of tea (or sake) in the pottery you buy. 【After seeing the crafts market?】 Hey, it is Saturday night! Fun part of this Meetup group is going to grab a drink afterword. It will be up to the members who will come on that day, but if you have time, enjoy the rest of the evening. ★We welcome travelers who will be in Kyoto on the Meetup day. ★We welcome local people living here, and want to meet other Kyoto craft fans. ★日本人の方ももちろんウェルカムです!他の言語が話せる方、、、参加者の中には日本語の話せない旅行者の方もいる場合があります。通訳などお手伝いいただけると助かります。
