The Kyoto Shishu Restoration Studio is dedicated to repairing embroidery and traditional cloth pieces. The Studio is operated by Wakosha, a cleaning company that specializes in Kimono for Buddhist monks and restoring embroidery works. Due to the fragile nature of aged embroidery and lack of professional restoration services, the studio receives up to 140 projects in need of repairs a year. The embroidery that comes through the doors are sometimes 100, 200, and even 300 years old. Therefore, the Kyoto Embroidery Restoration Studio employs skilled embroidery specialists to restore the works and bring them back to life. These expert craftsmen work tirelessly using traditional techniques and their vast experience to bring the works back to their former glory. The restoration studio even handles some of the equipment used for Kyoto's Gion Festival. Enjoy seeing the traditional tools and fabrics while watching the masters at work during our Quilt Japan Tours through the Kyoto Shishu Restoration Studio. You can also add this destination as a part of our Private Japan Tour Packages for a custom vacation experience with your favorite interests!
