[ What to know for a better experience ]
・The Osumi Peninsula is home to Japan's largest north-south stretch of laurel forest; this vast expanse of unspoiled nature, which contains roughly 4,000 species of plants, is the perfect environment for botanical cosmetics
・The nearby Sata Kyuuyaku-en was said to once house medicinal herbs imported from the South Seas and play host to medical research until the mid-19th century; it is a great local experience that combines history and culture
・The cosmetics factory, which repurposed an abandoned elementary school, is the first of its kind in Japan
・The workshop is available on rainy days, and the times are negotiable
・The types of cosmetics and the workshop tasks can be tailored to the participant's age; call ahead to make arrangements
・Products available for sale; feel free to buy anything you might like
・You can observe production through a window
・The workshop is held in an old school building, which creates a nostalgic and leisurely atmosphere
・The scent of your cosmetics will bring back memories of your trip

[ Points of note ]
※Confirm in advance whether you have any skin problems or allergies (plants, alcohol, etc.)
※All information is Japanese (some information can be presented in simple English or simple Japanese, but due to the detailed information given about cosmetics, bringing an interpreter is recommended; if you book in advance, information can be offered in Chinese)
・The factory is difficult to find, so look for the sign for 登尾小学校 (Noborio Elementary School) as a landmark
・The workshop involves the use of disposable rubber gloves
