A Trip With UNA

Crafts & Food

We offer programs to experience the cultures of Kyushu with a focus on crafts and food. UNA introduces you to a world of workshops and production sites not easily accessible on one's own.


Join us to explore modern cultures rooted in local climates, histories, and traditions — what we term “nativescapes.”


Our goal is to create a journey that inspires both visitors and those who welcome them. We invite you to be a part of our community, even if for a short time.

We really enjoyed the pottery experience and are extremely happy with how well we were treated. Both the host and translator were very helpful and knowledgeable. The pottery making itself was great fun and we all got to make some very nice pieces. Everything was very well organized. Thank you to all involved.

Rei and Megumi were incredibly kind, professional, and knowledgeable. They put together an impeccable tour for 16 students; every detail was considered to create the most fulfilling and smooth experience. We all left with such respect and appreciation for the craftsmen and organisers and would visit again if ever given the chance!
