Unseen Waterfall Meditation in Kyoto

 

Upon your stay in Kyoto, it is very likely that you will visit the Kiyomizu temple. There are many beautiful things to see there, and one of these might catch your attention: the Otowa waterfall with its water divided into three different streams. The Otowa waterfall is a good example of the importance of waterfall in the ancestral Japanese culture. The practice called Taki Gyo is maybe one of the most famous activities related to the waterfall. Its root can be found in Shintoism but it is also now performed as ascetic practice in Buddhism and Martial Arts. During this activity, you will have a chance to experience meditation inside the original Otowa water spot.

Kyoto-Style Irodori Sudare Bamboo Mat Making Experience

 

Try your hand at making sudare, traditional Japanese mats that are woven from bamboo and yarn. Visit one of the last sudare factories in Japan to learn the authentic craft from a professional, then make your own set of 2 as a unique take-home souvenir.

Your lesson takes place at Kawasaki Sudare, one of the few remaining sudare factories left in Japan. Traditionally used as screens or blinds to shield homes from the elements, sudare mats can be fashioned into a variety of sizes, and are even found in kitchens for rolling sushi. Watch a demonstration from an expert on how to braid coloured yarn, which is then used to weave together bamboo slats into the desired shape.
