Explore the one-of-a-kind collection of kimonos at Itchiku Kubota Art Museum. Itchiku Kubota's kimonos employ dyeing and decorating techniques that have been virtually obsolete since the 17th century. The artist also designed the entire hillside museum in a style inspired by Gaudi; stroll the gardens to fully appreciate the scenic location, with views of Mt. Fuji and the nearby lake. As a bonus treat, don't forget to have a cup of warm tea in the adjacent tea house.

Itchiku Kubota Art Museum Reviews
On the second day of our 5 day visit in Tokyo, Japan, we decided to take a day tour at Lake Kawaguchiko, one of the Fuji 5 lakes. Initially a one and a half hour bus ride turned into nearly 3 hours of... more »
富士山には穏、蔭、温、御など「おん」の字のタイトルがついているのだとか。変わりゆく富士山を表現した辻が花の作品はただただ美しい。 また本館茶房「一竹庵」からの景色も作品としかいいいようがない。8月は青楓ですが、紅葉の時期はまた格別でしょう。また訪ねてみようかと思います。茶房を利用しなくても、拝見できるので、のぞいてみてください。 more »Mt. Fuji has the title of the character of "On", such as calm, shade, warmth, and o. Tsuji's flower works that represent the changing Mt. Fuji are just beautiful. Moreover, the scenery from the main building chabo "Ichitakean" is also good as a work. August is a blue maple, but the time of autumn leaves is also exceptional. I think I'll visit again. Even if you don't use the tea bunch, you can see it, so please take a look.
Very beautiful kimono art pieces. A worthy visit for art lovers and fashion oriented people. The cafe is really beautiful, but the prices are steep.
A very nice museum with a very nice garden. You can get into part of the garden for free. In late November it was very beautiful with the autumn colors. The kimonos exposed inside are real art works, but I find the entrance fee a bit pricey. After the visit in the museum you can walk in the part of the garden on the back of the building, which is also nice and without crowds because no one goes there apparently. The architecture of the museum is also unique. Worth a visit if you're spending some time in Kawaguchiko, maybe in the afternoon when the Fuji is not visible and the sun has gone down. It takes about 40min/1h to visit.
