The game of Go is probably something over 2,500 years old, making it one of civilisation’s oldest hobbies.
Recently I’ve been getting interested in kabuki theatre though the NHK series Kabuki Kool, which got me wondering what other traditional activities other forumgoers enjoyed or were interested in.
Some topics which I know have come up before are, in greater or lesser measure:
- classical music, baroque instruments, and Byzantine chants
- art restoration and museum conservation
- classical literature
- farming and gardening
- other table games, some of course likely even older than Go
Does anyone else enjoy hobbies like these that have stood the test of time?
