About outdoor activities
Using the abundant natural gifts of Shimoda, you can create a variety of things: seagrass pressing crafts, sea crafts, bamboo crafts, and pottery. You can also create crafts using chirimen fabric in the tranquil homes of the satoyama areas (traditional Japanese communities near mountains).

Rope handling was a part of my job when I was a sailor. I produced various
rope knitting craftworks when I was at leisure at sea. Coasters and mats are my favorites.
I also make Misanga, dragonfly and butterfly, which are easier.
