Saori tour of Japan with Saori Worcester

In 2007, I went with Mihoko on a Saori Tour of Japan. It was a wonderful trip and we got to visit many Saori studios as well as see many sites in Japan. The people that we met were so welcoming and I loved the trip – it was great to be there with someone from Japan who could do all the translations, knew the places to go and did all the organizing! When I went, I thought it was a once-in-a-lifetime trip, but people kept saying “When you come back to Japan….” and I thought no, this is my only trip. After the third time I heard that I started to believe it.

Japan Tour

In 2010 I did return to Japan for another SAORI experience. You can read more about it here and here and even here, here and here. We were there for Misao Jo’s 97th birthday celebration!

I would highly recommend this upcoming trip to anyone who can make it. I recently heard from Mihoko and Nat that they are still accepting people for the tour even at this late date.

Here is the info:

The 4th Saori Improvisational Hand-Weaving Study & Friendship Tour of Japan is from June 23-Thursday, July 7 with Saori Worcester. More information here (where you will also see some photos of me on the trip!) Please contact them directly if you are interested.

Japan Tour

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about Japan – not just because of the earthquake and tsunami, but because I want to plan another trip for more SAORI – soon!
