You can try coloring a pair of chopsticks or a spoon with Wajima-nuri's traditional technique, "Chinkin." Chinkin (Gold Inlay) is a traditional lacquerware technique of Wajima-nuri that Japan is proud of. The venue is the only museum in the world that exhibits lacquerware. Motifs are carved into the lacquered surface with special chisels, and a thin layer of lacquer is rubbed into the incised lines. Lastly, gold foil or colored dust is applied over the soft lacquer to form a contrast with the ground. You can color the chopsticks or the spoon with metal powder on which patterns are already engraved. It is an easy activity that even people with no experience can enjoy.
