10th Anniversary diplomatic relationship between Japan and Cook Islands 2021


Welcome to Cook Islands specialty shop “KyoSpa5” in Kyoto Japan.

There are many Japanese people who don’t know about Cook Islands.

I’ve been there four times for work since 2016, and I’m not a tourist or a local resident. I would like to share my experiences with you all.✨

As a certified project to commemorate the establishment of diplomatic relations,“2021 Kyoto Japan, where you can experience the traditions and culture of the Cook Islands with all five senses” I’m introduced in videos, blogs, and SNS.


Due to the coronavirus pandemic, I will mainly be posting on SNS,

We’ve made a video of how to recreate the local “traditional dish Ikamata” in Japan, and have you actually make it yourself!

I talked with the owner of Tivaevae, Rarotonga, Cook Islands, about traditional embroidered quilts over Zoom.

The traditional embroidery quilt “Tivaevae” was actually made using locally sourced basting thread…
We’are making “Tivaevae” embroidery experiences in the Spa.

This video is about traditional craft “Rito hat” traditional.

In addition, because we can’t go to abroad now.
I would be happy if you could experience a lot of things that you would like to experience in Kyoto.

I also talked with Cook Islanders athlete who participated in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
