Goshuincho Stamp Book Making
and Tea Ceremony

Goshuincho is a book of special seals collected as proof of having visited a temple or shrine. After learning about the tradition and history of the Goshuincho, you will choose, cut, and glue beautiful Japanese washi paper to make your own book. 
After making your Goshuincho, you will move to the tatami room where you will learn the proper manners for receiving seals at temples and shrines while enjoying matcha tea and wagashi served by the tea master.  The matcha cafe is right behind the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine. Maybe, you can ask for your first Goshuin seal thereafter the class? *The book can also be used as a diary or scrapbook.
