【Closed】Johana Oriyakata じょうはな織館

Feel the history of traditional silk fabrics

【Closing at the end of March 2023】
The moment you step inside, you find yourself in a space that reminds you of early Showa Period architecture. Situated in the middle of Johana, also known as Little Kyoto, this is where the town’s silk fabrics have been handed down and exchanged over the years. Tour the weaving workshops, weave your own products, browse in the shop that sells original small woven products or relax in the gallery and coffee shop. There’s a row of weaving machines in the Experience Space on the 1st floor. Savour the excitement of seeing the fabric gradually weave itself into a shape. Why don’t you enjoy the world of weaving in the various courses held here?
