Higeta Indigo Dyeing Studio (日下田藍染工房)

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."

          Most visits to Tochigi revolve around Nikko, a small city home to the spectacular, lavishly decorated Toshogu Shrine and Nikko National Park with its mountains, lakes, waterfalls, onsen, and wild monkeys. Neighboring Oku-Nikko is an extension of the fantastic scenery famous for its autumn leaves, while Tochigi’s capital, Utsunomiya, is the only place in the world where you can find oya stone beautifully exhibited in temples and the Oya History Museum.
