4.0

Other Factory Tour / Demonstration

The Azamiya Minsah Craft Center is located about 10 minutes' drive from the Ishigaki Port Outer Island Ferry Terminal. Besides manufacturing Yaeyama Minsah textiles, the Center also has a display room and shop, and visitors can watch the fabric being made. The workshop and display room are on the ground floor; visitors can view part of the manufacturing process. The display room showcases historic and modern examples of Minsah textiles, and also has a display on the dyeing techniques that are used. Visitors who book their visit in advance may be able to try their hand at making Minsah fabric in the annex building; the price depends on the program chosen and the length of the experiential activity.

Reviewed:2019/03/24 Great way to spend an hour on a cold rainy day
We went to the Minsah Kogei museum on a cold and rainy afternoon. Make sure you call to make an appointment though. Young children can also take part but they need to be tall enough to reach the...

This is one place I planned on visiting when we planned our one day in Ishigaki. My mistake not to check to see if we would actually see the weaving. Not many of the staff spoke some English...

          Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You've arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan's most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
