about amino

31.1 – 14.2 Chuchi am Wasser, Wasserwerkstrasse 21, 8006 Zürich 079 2048045, see opening hours

Amino is a village on the east coast of Kyoto, in Japan. Surrounded by a magically deep forest (similar to the one that you see in Spirited Away:)) deep blue sea, singing sand and natural hot springs. Amino is the place where we feel so much beauty and magic that it can’t be expressed by words.

The Ojichans (grandfathers) and Obaachans (grandmothers) that live in Amino, shared some of the old traditions and handcrafts that the perceive, with us, that we now want to bring closer to you in Zurich.

Amino in Zurich is a project to create a space with elements of Amino in Japan. While enjoying Japanese grandmother’s meals you can listen to the sounds of nature, as we find them there. As you drink selected Japanese green tea or a cup of sake you can see a unique Japanese dance performance or participate in the art of calligraphy. By time, you can watch an old, old Japanese movie and dive into ancient Japan.

We offer a free Japanese lesson every Sunday
at Amino so just come by, and let’s practice.
We hope to see you soon in Amino and let us enjoy together.
Jaa, mata ne.
