About this sight

Here tourists can witness one of the most amazing experiences in Japan. This company creates kimonos from scratch. They make their own dye, create their own designs, dye each kimono by hand, and complete the creation of every kimono in-house. As Tokamachi is famous for specializing in both types of kimonos, this store also does both weaving and dyeing of kimonos. With a history of over 1,200 years, this technique has been mastered by many artisans in this city. This is a highly recommended experience as Tokamachi is the only city in Japan where visitors can put their kimono creation skills to the test.
