Fodor's Review

Master textile creator Keiji Kawakami is an expert on the hundreds of traditional towel motifs that have come down from the Edo period: geometric patterns, plants and animals, and scenes from Kabuki plays and festivals. His cotton tenugui (teh-noo-goo-ee) hand towels are collector's items, often framed instead of used as towels.
