Our favorite good-smelling spot!!
I’m Miharu, a student at Hannan University.
The weather has been really hot lately, but the nights have been really cool, which is perfect for summer festivals!
The other day, I wrote about making buckwheat noodles.
But guess what? We got to try another new thing! :D
What’s this good-smelling park?
We turned left, and there we were!
The factory is called Awaji-Kunjyudou.
This red noren curtain marks it.
And this is what we made!
⚠They’re not cookies!⚠ lol
I thought that we were going to make regular ol' sticks of incense, but when I heard the explanation, I was really surprised because it sounded like we were going to make colorful clay!
When I first saw this, I thought it just looked like powder.
We could choose whatever color and scent we liked, and make our own incense.
There were some really interesting smells. ;)
There were so many fragrances!
After kneading the clay, I cut out cookie-like shakes.
After our seminar teacher heard that we could make 3D things, she made this. She's such a joker!
Why!? Why did she make a Moai statue?
She looked up pictures of moai statues on her phone, then got soooo serious when she was making it.
She redid it so many times, it ended up really dry.
We had fun the whole time we were making them.
We could take them home with us as soon as they were finished, so I'm looking forward to actually trying it out soon!
If you want to try making incense like we did, you need to go in a group of at least two people, and it costs 1000 yen per person.
There are other things you can try, too! Give it a shot!
