Yamagami Dyeworks Shop山上染物店

Souvenirs

Yamagami Dyeworks Shop is a venerable establishment, dating back to the middle of the Edo period (1615–1867), located in the Sakana-machi of Murakami City, Niigata Prefecture. Their main business is manufacturing and selling made-to-order dyed goods for businesses with trademarks or family crests on items such as noren curtains or happi coats. Its distinctive, subdued vegetables dyes, Hokugen-no-cha-zome, made with special locally produced Murakami tea are especially attractive with shibumi taste (austere elegance) . In the storefront, customers can choose from the hand towels, handkerchiefs, bath towels, and other goods displayed there, and, if they make reservations ahead of time, they can even try dyeing cloth with tea. They can also tour the machiya townhouse, a Tangible Cultural Property, where the business is located.

          Found along the northwestern coast of Japan, Niigata prefecture is celebrated for its high-quality rice and breathtaking nature, most notably its spectacular mountains, whose white peaks draw in snow sports lovers from far and wide over the winter months. Hit the slopes at Yuzawa, pick out your favourite modern artist at Echigo Tsumari, or take a ferry over to Sado Island for an extra adventure.
