Miraculous Washi Towel Shabu-shabu Experience
Shizuoka Rofu's Washi (Japanese paper) Towel Shabu-shabu Experience workshop is in Murakushi-cho, Nishi-ku, Hamamatsu. Located at the tip of the Shonai Peninsula which juts out into central Lake Hamana, the town of Murakushi-cho retains the tranquil scenery of its lake-surrounded setting. After that, the Washi Towel Shabu-shabu Experience offered at this workshop allows you to experience the instantaneous transformation of a crisp, freshly woven Washi Towel into a soft and fluffy towel by soaking (shabu-shabu) it in hot water. After that you get to dye it, creating your own unique Washi Towel to take home with you.
