Beautiful kimonos

The kimonos are exquisite. Well worth a visit. There was also a video which showed how they were made - very impressive.

Didn’t Know What to Expect.

Visited the museum even though we are not museum people but we were pleasantly surprised. Very quirky building and environment which is good for photos. Inside is not big but you will learn enough about Japanese culture of kimonos.

Beautiful collection, the work of a master
Oct 2019
For anyone with an interest in textiles this is a must see. Take the time to watch the short film first to understand what you are looking at as the techniques used are incredibly complex. I had never seen anything like it. Every piece is a work of art. It is quite a story of a person following their passion and perfecting it. The gardens and shop are lovely as well.

The whole place is magnificent, The location, facing Mt. Fuji, Lake Kawaguchi. The gardens, The Teresa , the building. But the most unique are the Beautiful Kimonos created by Ichiku Kubota the Japanese artist who built this museum.

Beautiful kimonos, inspiring story
Nov 2019
Well worth your time to visit and learn about the inspiring artist Itchiku Kubota. He designed the interesting museum building, gardens and grounds which were as fascinating and beautiful as his kimonos. Be sure to watch the video first, an English version is provided to the left as you walk into the main museum area. This was definitely a highlight of our visit to Kawaguchiko.

The visit to this small exquisite museum was a highlight of my 2 1/2 week trip to Japan. The building and gardens were beautiful. The kimonos were absolutely stunning. Do not miss it.

Rare gem

Chance to view an unusual art form and works from a master in a stunning setting. Out of the way, but worth it. Spend 45 minutes to 2 hours here. Learn about the artist before you go to appreciate it.

Outstanding!
Oct 2019 • Couples
What a fabulous exhibition, the kimonos are like nothing you have ever seen before, the craftsmanship and artistry defies belief. We stayed for ages and will definitely come again if we are back this way. The kimonos on show are changed 3 times a year so definitely worth more than one visit. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Outstanding craftsmanship
Oct 2019
We visited this museum on a rainy day. We walked around the lake from our hotel. The approach through a caved wooden gate and up through a small garden is a great introduction to the vision of Itchiku Kubota. Make sure you watch the 20 minute video before seeing the kimonos. You will appreciate the hours of work each one requires much more after watching the film and seeing interviews with the artist himself. The gardens are tranquil and atmospheric even in the rain. There is a tea room and a small cafe for drinks only where you can see Itchiku Kobata’s personal collection of beads from around the world. No photos are allowed inside.
