Story & Recommendation
Enjoy and experience Japanese historical Nishijin textiles near the imperial palace
The beautiful fabrics woven in the Nishijin district are seen as a symbol of Kyoto. Nishijin textiles have been developed over 1,000 years by the Hata clan, descendants of immigrants from China, who brought new farming methods as well as knowledge of silkworms and the manufacture of silk fabrics. Modernization of the Japanese silk textile industry begun in Nishijin (Official brochure used as reference) after methods and technology such as Jacquard and flying shuttle were learnt from France and Austria. In the Nishijin Textile Center, you can experience trying on kimono, making scarves with Japanese silk threads, watching hand-weaving, and more.
