Nishijin Textile Center

Nishijin Textile Center

This center gives visitors the opportunity to learn how a Kyoto traditional industry runs by offering demonstrations by artisans who perform the processes required to make Nishijin textiles. Also, on the ground floor, there is a "Kimono Show", dazzling with gold and silver brocades that are so redolent of Nishijin, making this show very popular with visitors. Visitors also can participate in hand weaving tasters where 20 x 30cm table center cloths can be woven. Nishijin products are also on display and can be purchased.
Parking has been arranged for wheelchair users and access to the center by wheelchair is possible, so everyone can enjoy the delights of Nishijin. Also, there is a restaurant on the ground floor.
