機織機があり「かすり」の反物ができるまでの工程を見ることができます。一部白く残して藍で染めた縦糸に精密に作られた設計図に基づき横糸を織っていく作業工程は、見ると聞くとでは大違い。こんな複雑な織物技術だとは驚きでした。明治大正の人々はこの絣を常時着るキモノとして使用していたでしょうが、今日の需要の減少と後継者不足で廃れて行ってしまうのは惜しい限りです。かすりで作られたランチョンマットやコースターなど...

          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country’s oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
