Nagoya, Ise-Shima, and the Kii Peninsula Sights

Arimatsu-Narumi Shibori Kaikan (Arimatsu Tie-Dyeing Museum)

Updated 09/20/2013

Fodor's Review

Traditional shibori (tie-dyed cotton) has been produced in this area for more than 400 years. At the Arimatsu-Narumi Tie-Dyeing Museum, you can learn about the history of the dyeing technique and see demonstrations of the production process. The museum sells samples of the cloth, which features striking white designs on the deepest indigo, as well as clothing, tablecloths, and other items. You can also try making your own tie-dyed souvenirs at one of the regular

workshops, which require a reservation and cost upward of ¥1,050. Arimatsu Station is 25 minutes south of Nagoya on the Meitetsu Nagoya Line.
