Here you can participate in the making of a variety of the traditional handicrafts of Yamanashi Prefecture, such as papermaking or pongee weaving, and enjoy the traditional cuisine of the region.
- This Japanese term literally means "helmet construction," and it depicts one of the construction methods for the roofing used on ancient houses, as it resembles the helmets worn by the warrior samurai class.
