** High-resolution image available on request - please email email@example.com.
Fukube (Gourd Painting) is a traditional Japanese craft of gourd painting. Fukube masks are said to protect you from evil spirits! To prepare the gourd to be painted, the artist will scrape out the seeds from the inside and then dry the outer skin. Mr. Masanobu Ogawa, a Fukube artist from Tochigi Prefecture will demonstrate Fukube gourd art and give visitors the opportunity to paint their own gourd: family participation is encouraged!
