  • If you would like to see Kimono Show for free you may come to this textile center. They have kimono show everyday on certain schedules. Besides you may see and learn the history of the Japan textile industry. This place also has souvenirs of Japan including traditional foods, fabrics, and handmade creations
  • This center is a nice place to see a Kimono or a Yukata up close. It is small, with two exhibitions. One displays the silk cycle (from worm to treatment) and the other a few pieces of textiles from the last century. The Kimono show (fashion show running 6 times a day) was pleasing. The amount of good quality souvenir you can buy from the center was great. Most of it is made in Japan. They also sell beautiful second hand Kimono and Yukata at a very affordable price. I just wish they had more selection for men.
