Description

Travel to the Yuki city, known for its fine silk and kimono craft! 

Only 90 minutes away from central Tokyo you will find yourself in an area which is unknown to most tourists. 

For this tour, if you would like you can wear a kimono for the day. 

Other than that you will be with an English speaking assistant who will help you translate the craftsman's word.

Not only you will be visiting warehouses full of kimono, but you can also try out experiencing Japanese traditional dyeing or weaving by a loom. 

The artisans will help you make your original coaster, or dye eco-bag, hand towel, or bandana. 

You will also be visiting the Buyu Sake Brewery and the Akibakoji Miso Brewery, where here you can taste out the local taste.
