Tokyo Sashiko Museum | Japanese Sashiko

Sashiko literally means little stabs and is a Japanese traditional form of decorative reinforcement. This museum is dedicated to the works of modern sashiko artist Akie Sakamoto. Located in the hills of Hinohara with Mt. Fuji in the background, the museum is tucked away in nature for a serene atmosphere. The museum itself is very valuable to see with many incredible works of Sakamoto on display. Rather than a traditional museum building, the Sashiko Museum displays beautiful sashiko art in a house built over 200 years ago. The interior is filled with sashiko art made by Ms. Sakamoto and some are available for purchase. The traditional designs of the interior mixed with the stunning sashiko art makes this hidden museum a true gem for quilters and stitch-artists.
