Orinasukan hand-weaving Museum (手織ミュージアム 織成舘)


Museum / Science Museum

This museum which opened in the first year of the Heisei period (1989) in the traditional oriyadate “Nishijin Textile Building” displays materials and tools related to Japanese hand weaving including Kyoto’s traditional Nishijin silk fabrics. There are 90 items preserved and on display in various themed exhibitions, such as rare pieces of clothing including those worn from the end of the Edo period to beginning of the Showa period, reconstructed Noh theater costumes, and items that have completely disappeared from present-day Japan. There are also workshop viewing and hand-weaving activities available where you can make and take home your own piece. The nearest bus stops are Senbon Kamidachiuri or Imadegawa Jofukuji.

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
