My wife was a little disappointed. She was hoping for fabric she couldn't get at home in Australia. Nothing extraordinary.

We found our way to the Nishijin Textile Center on the local bus. Glad we made the trip. Hand made scarves, lots of mens ties and interesting displays. The scarves are 100% silk and you can see them making something in one of the rooms. Not sure if it was a scarf or kimono. They also do a daily fashion show that looked fun but we missed it. Handicap accessible and free.

This isn't a comprehensive review as I visited during a day when they were operating on limited hours, so the availability of the kimono show and demos was limited. On a regular day the experience may well be different. That said, when I did go it was pretty disappointing. The museum that they offered on the third floor was definitely interesting and I wish that they would expand it and provide even more information on the different weaving techniques. In terms of demos, there were only 2 that were available when I went - unfortunately I was unable to communicate with the craftsmen so there was a limit to what I could glean from what they were doing (and both stopped their work, sadly, as I approached). Primarily the rest of the space is all shopping, half of which was the normal touristy souvenir items available everywhere.

Basically a shopping stop, but interesting to learn about Kimono's and fun to see the little fashion show. Wide range of expensive artisan silk items to inexpensive souvenirs available.

If you're up for some souvenir shopping then this place is where you should buy from. It's the place where all the small shops buy from, so it's cheaper. Many many interesting things to buy.
