Itchiku Kubota was a Japanese textile artist who devoted his life in recreating Tsujigahana, a fabric dyeing technique from 15th century. Since that technique was forgotten, he revived the lost art and modernized it at the age of 60. Most of his beautiful crafted kimonos are exhibited in the museum overlooking a stunning Japanese garden. Among the collection, Kubota's Symphony of Light is a can't miss. The Symphony of Light combines 80 kimono to form a picture of Mt. Fuji.
In addition to the collection of Kimono, the museum also boasts a waterfall and outdoor stage, tea house, and gardens designed by Kubota himself. The museum grounds also feature various artworks from places in Asia and Africa from the museum's main gate to the museum entrance. The museum is a hidden treasure in the Fuji Five Lakes area.
View the beautiful kimono up close during one of our Takayama or Takayama Festival Japan Tours or during a Quilt Festival Tours for an unforgettable vacation through Japan.
