Iga Kumihimo Kumi no Sato (伊賀伝統伝承館 伊賀くみひも 組匠の里)
This store of traditional Iga braid-making is located on the eastern side of Iga Ueno Park. You can experience kumihimo braiding first-hand at the facility. If you make a reservation, it is possible to make either a key holder or bracelet. Using a marudai (round stand frame for making kumihimo), you will be able to make your own Iga kumihimo in about 20 to 30 minutes. On the second floor, there are historical materials that introduce traditional crafts that represent Mie Prefecture such as Iga-yaki ware and Ise-katagami (type of paper stencil for dyeing textiles). In addition, they also exhibit and sell original kumihimo goods including sashes for kimono, scarves, and dolls made from kumihimo.

Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
