Hida Sashiko Company

Located about a 10-minute walk from JR Takayama Station, this long-established store manufactures and sells traditional Hida handicrafts, sashiko (quilted clothes). Housed in a machiya (traditional wooden townhouse) on a quiet street along the Miya River, it has a space that spreads like a gallery. The “bobo kurumi,” carefully made piece by piece, is a cute sarubobo (monkey doll) made using cloth that can be bought only here. There are many small accessories that use traditional patterns in a contemporary style, and besides pouches and bags, there are also luncheon mats and tissue paper cases with beautiful designs. Even the same products have their own individuality, making it fun to search for your favorite one.
