  • Hakone yosegi-zaiku (Japanese parquetry), a traditional craft dating to the Edo period(1603-1868)
    The combination of the natural colors of various woods create distinctive, geometric patterns. The Hatajuku area of Hakone is home to many practitioners of yosegi-zaiku, and many shops demonstrate the craft as well as exhibit and sell the finished products. In addition, visitors can try their hand at making coasters and other small crafts.
    Various other hands-on experiences are available in the Hakone area, including kimono dressing, matcha green tea and glassblowing.
