Towel Museum, Imabari

3.0
#1 of 15 in Museums in Imabari
More shop than museum, Towel Museum sells colorful towels in various size and interesting patterns. Located within a modern building, the museum occupies three floors and features quirky towel sculptures resembling cakes, breads, burgers, and popcorn. You can observe the actual process of making towels, starting from the raw cotton, to spinning and weaving on the automatic loom. Relax in the garden enclosed by citrus trees, and wrap up your visit with a quick snack at the onsite restaurant.

  • Towel museum ?? I couldn’t believe there could be this kind of museum. Who could think of a towel can be a thing to be exhibited? Well ~ if you don’t come and visit here you’ll never know what it’s like. The scale of this museum is really huge and there’s a pretty garden outside of the museum. You get an admission ticket with a small piece of towel. This Imabari towel is well known for high-priced, high quality of towel in Japan. I was really surprised to see all those towel art works. So lovely and so amazing piece of art works are definitely attractive enough to every viewers. There are many collaboration products done with cartoon characters as well. It makes you open your wallet. You might end up spending a lot of money to buy cute and beautiful stuffs in the shop after walking around the magnificent exhibition. Great exhibition ~ The best towel products~ People of all ages including kids and adults would have a wonderful happy time here. One to be desired is that there is no public transportation to get here. The best way is to come here by a rented car. That’s why I couldn’t see many foreign tourists but the natives who come in a tour package.
  • It is good for sightseeing, but better to come here with kids because there are many exhibition of moomin and friends' collection.
