In the afternoon will then head to Kyoto to Nishijinori Kobo-Orinasukan, a fabric museum. Nishinori Kobo-Orinasukan exhibits various kinds of beautiful fabrics like kimono and obi (belt). Among the 600 artifacts and fabric, the museum's great selection of obi definitely attracts guests. Nishijinori Kobo-Orinasukan was first built in 1936 as the residence of a craftsman but was remodeled into a museum in 1989. Although some features of the residence were removed and remodeled, the museum still preserves a homey feel. Guests can wander around the museum and view the great collection of fabrics and obi and even experience the art of weaving.
