Tsumugi-no-Yakata, a traditional silk fabric museum

With a long history of 2,000 years, Yuki Tsumugi silk fabric exists

This facility opened as a Yuki Tsumugi museum in 2006. Okujun Inc., a yuki tsumugi wholesaler with a history of more than 100 years, built this facility hoping to let more people know about Yuki Tsumugi, and its production technique, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the company’s foundation. The facility has a gallery, a yuki tsumugi exhibition room, a yuki tsumugi shop, and a craft studio to experience handloom-weaving and fabric-dyeing. In each season, various kinds of events take place, such as learning how to dye a yukata (a casual cotton kimono) and how to wear a kimono, a Hina-doll display, and a new yuki tsumugi collection. How about visiting here to see traditional beautiful craft works?
