Kurogane Cutlery Workshop

工房くろがね (Kobo Kurogane)
Try making your very own blade in the middle of the Shimanto River countryside
A workshop surrounded by green mountains and Shimanto River scenery. Turning iron sand into iron using a traditional Japanese furnace called a tatara, this workshop offers smithing experiences where you can turn steel materials into a knife. Working the red-hot iron into shape is a really memorable experience. The smithy can speak basic English to guide you through the process. A fantastic cultural experience to enjoy out in the beautiful Kochi countryside.
