After that we went to a factory that manufactured the material edging that is on the edges of the tatami mats. We tried our hand at edging small, rectangles of tatami. It needed concentration and a steady hand but everyone managed to produce something.
We then went to lunch at the "World Buffet" where we could enjoy a bountiful buffet of a variety of food plus a dessert range, including a chocolate fountain. It goes without saying that the group did not hold back on this one.
After lunch the group were put with 4 students from Kura Mina who had put their names into a lottery for the pleasure of guiding CHS students round the historic quarter of Kurashiki.
Here are some photos of the groups:
