Various courses for you to enjoy at the brush factory!

There are five courses to select from, including the powder brush making experience, a cheek or eye brush experience, calligraphy, and also picture painting experience.
The powder brush making experience being the most comprehensive, you get to select from a rose-shaped or round brush shape as well as the brush color and then try your hand at actual brush making.
For a bit of a lighter experience there is the eye brush and cheek brush making experience where you can create your own brush by selecting one of the premade brush tops and combining it with one of the handles of various styles and colors. The picture painting experience is more aimed toward the younger visitors who can try their hand at coloring postcards with the original brushes of Koyudo. Lastly, the calligraphy experience lets you create your own kakejiku hanging scroll to take back home.
