Japanese Weaving Studio(Johana Oriyakata)

Japanese Weaving Studio(Johana Oriyakata)


The Oriyakata silk shop is a symbol of Johana, once a prospering silk goods district. Now you can experience this traditional art for yourself in a building whose authentic interior is graced with pedal-driven manual looms and table-top looms that bring back the nostalgic feel of the Showa era. 7 courses are available, ranging from 30 minutes to 5 hours. First timers need not be concerned - our instructors are more than happy to guide you gently at your own pace.
