Nishijin Textile Center - Kimono Show

The kimono has been associated with the image of Japan for centuries. Within Japan itself, Kyoto has been the main centre for kimono and textile production for more than 1000 years. Although demand for kimono decreased dramatically once Western clothes were introduced to Japan during the Meiji period (1868-1912), Kyoto still remains famous for kimonos and textiles. The Nishijin Textile Center, situated in the centre of Kyoto in the Nishijin weaving area, is an alliance consisting of more than 700 small companies that continue to foster and nurture the ancient textile tradition.

The seven-storey “Nishijin” Union building is located on Horikawa Street, just south of Imadegawa. It is a museum, a factory, a shop and a gallery all in one.

The most attractive thing is Kimono Fashion Show. It’s held six to seven times daily at the Nishijin Textile Center. The showcases kimono changes with the season.
