Cool Takasaki Presents: Silk Cocoon Craft Event

The next event in the Cool Takasaki series is a guided tour through the Prefectural Nippon Silk Center and its special exhibition on silkworms. Learn about the process of silk production and how it is used to make things like kimono. Finally, try making your very own silk cocoon craft!


What is Cool Takasaki?

Cool Takasaki is a series of TIRS events that highlight the many talented people living and working in Takasaki. Some events are designed so that foreign residents may experience traditional Japanese culture, while others are created for Japanese locals to experience the wealth of foreign culture that can be found right here in Takasaki.

Participants of any Cool Takasaki event agree to take photos and videos that they will later share on their various social media platforms, using hashtags such as #cooltakasaki. This is a great way to show the entire world what fun and exciting new cultural experiences await them in our beloved city!
