Kōgei (crafts）and Gastronomy and Performing Arts
Kōgei Dining is an experience-based program that started in 2019 as a series of events tied to the Japan Cultural Expo.
The full beauty of Kōgei (crafts) pieces cannot be understood just by looking—they must be used. This program provides participants with a valuable opportunity to do just that through a dinner party. Participants can also purchase Kōgei at the venue so that they can continue to enjoy life with Kōgei even after the event.
In its fifth year, this program will be held at Atami. During this year’s event, participants will be able to experience a range of Japanese traditions, including a dance performance and a dinner party.
