Our studio is a 15-minute walk from Kita-Kamakura station. At the end of a narrow path leading from Jochiji Temple, you will find a small old Japanese folk house standing alone on more than an acre of land. This is a unique place, a plot between the hills that was cultivated during the Kamakura Era (12-13 Centuries A.D.) and now features an old ceramic wood-fired kiln and a deep well. It is a place of deep history and rich, living culture.
