I love yuzen dying and traditional Japanese textiles so I found this small museum/craft center fascinating. However, my friends who were not as into textiles thought it was a bit pricey for the size. Overall I would strongly recommend it for people who are interested in Japanese textiles but if you have only a passing interest you may want to... More

And, this is my most recommend actually, they provide many Kimono for rent. You can stroll around traditional areas, like the Higashi Chaya-gai district in... More
