Dye Fabric with All-Natural Dyes - Stay Overnight in an Old Japanese School Building
The activity is organized by Bouken Kazoku, located in the town of Kutchan, right at the foot of Mt. Yotei (aka Ezo-Fuji), with a great view of the Niseko Mountain Range. You can stay in an 80-year-old former Japanese school building here, and experience various activities all four seasons of the year. Enjoy!
Plants of all four seasons will be used, so it's up to nature to decide what color will be made! Ask for advice from our experienced guide to make a piece you'll love forever!
If you wish, you can extend the activity time to start from picking the plants to dye with, yourself (for an additional cost)! Learn how to dye fabric by yourself from scratch!
Our 80-year-old school building welcomes you to stay for laid-back holidays overnight.

Profile

We use a renovated elementary school for some of our programs. The classrooms are converted into an accommodation facility including a restaurant, a gym, fireplace, and an old-fashioned hot bathtub (Goemon Buro) (the bathtub is heated with a fire directly underneath). You can experience real country life in our facility.
