On day 5 of the Kendo Tour, we’ll journey to a quiet corner of Japan, where Shelly Clarke has spent over a decade breathing life into a once-forgotten Kominka-style home. With each beam restored and every tile replaced, she’s meticulously preserved a piece of Japan’s rich architectural history. But Shelly’s artistry doesn’t end there. As the morning light filters through the age-old wooden frames, she’ll serenade us with the beautiful melodies of her Koto. This isn’t just a visit, it’s a trip back in time. Discover the significance of Kominka homes and their role in keeping history alive.
