Art Gallery / Gallery

This art gallery is dedicated to Higashi-Kagawa's local glove industry which produces 90% of the gloves made in Japan. The renovated hall was a glove factory until 2000. Exhibitions include items like sewing machines and antique Showa era glove making equipment. There are displays of gloves as well. They also sell gloves, have tours where you can take in the glove making process, and offer workshops where you can make small leather accessories.

It was really nice to get to know that in Kagawa prefecture there is a huge production of gloves that makes most of the gloves in Japan. It also uses from basic to super-hight technology.

手袋の街ならではの施設で、昭和の手袋工場をリニューアルして手袋アートを展示しています。入館料は無料で、自由に見学できます。今まで見たことのない異様な空間でした。

小学校の遠足で徳島から屋島に行ったとき、ガイドさんが「このあたりは手袋工場が日本一」と言われたのをかすかに覚えています。レトロな木造の工場ー10数年前までは使用されていたそうですが、中に入ると、懐かしい昔のミシンがならんでいました。販売もあり、短時間でしかも無料で見ることができました。

          Japan’s smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone’s throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa’s prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country’s best gardens.
