Ganko Ittetsu Nagaya, Sumi no Shiryokan (がんこ一徹長屋・墨の資料館)

Other Factory Tour / Demonstration

You’ll find this artisan tenement about a five-minute walk from Nishinokyo Station. The facility is run by seven artisans who utilize traditional Yamato techniques. Their workshops face the street, and they create tea whisks, plaited cords, “ittobori” wood sculptures, Akahada pottery, writing brushes, and dry lacquer for all to see. The items on display inside the workshops are for sale as well. The nearby “Sumi no Museum” hosts exhibits on special inks and paintings. Entry is available with a joint ticket offered by the tenement.

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
