Higeta Indigo Dyeing Studio

Souvenirs
"An indigo dyeing shop that has been in business since the late 1700s. Traditional indigo and vegetable dyeing techniques are said to have once accounted for 80% of the clothing worn by the public. Here those techniques have been handed down to the present day. Popularly known as ""Japan Blue,"" indigo and its traditional dyeing methods are highly regarded around the world. The 200-year-old thatched house epitomizes Mashiko's townscape, and the 72 indigo vats arrayed inside are a sight to see. Both the building and the vats are registered as prefectural Tangible Cultural Properties."

    『陶器市』の際に寄りました。この場所は陶器市の端になり、ここから道路の反対側に移動し戻り始める位置に利用しています。初めて入りましたが中国の「九寨溝」のような藍染め孔は、とてもきれいでした。 庭にある「双体地蔵」も趣があります。
  • 不可思议的技术
