My husband and I rate this museum as our favourite museum in all Japan! We spent about 2 hours here absolutely fasinated by the displays of old kimonos. Chuzaburo Tanaka collected hundreds of old kimonos and other pieces and has some on show here.
From the prefecture of Aomori, the people made clothes from hemp and simply kept patching them over and over again and using scraps tp keep padding for warmth. They are shabbily beautiful.
Ther are many stories to read that are sooo beautiful that I was in tears at times.
Phots and touching were encouraged for most articles. I couln' t believe it.
Also, we had the museum almost to ourselves and could wander quietly around with noone watching us.
It was wonderful. It is very close to the sensoi ji temple. Don' t miss it !

I am a textiles freak so loved the Boro exhibition. Even better one is able to take as many pictures as possible and even try some of the garments on. While I was there there was also a Hiroshige woodcut display - what more can I say? Fantastic location right by the Asakusa templeas
