If you have always been interested in Ryokan - Japanese traditional inns - but are unsure about how to conduct yourself when staying at one, this is your chance to find out more from the people best qualified to answer your questions: Ryokan Managers.

In the course of an afternoon of fun and games, seven Okami-san, or female Japanese traditional inn managers, will teach us what to do and what not to do when staying at a Ryokan, and share many other aspects of their culture, including the proper way to wear a kimono.

Staying at a Ryokan 感受日本的傳統旅館:
12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
This session will include travel tips, songs, and games involving traditional Japanese toys.

Kimono Workshop 和服穿著示範與體驗 (for men and women):

The Okami-san will be serving Japanese tea during the workshop.

Admission is free. All are welcome.
