Enjoyed the 10 minute kimono fashion show and very small museum. The kimonos are overpriced but interesting things in their gift store. Worth a quick look if in the neighborhood but wouldn't go out of your way to see this.

If you are interested in Japanese textiles, this is perfect. There are areas where you can see kimono fabrics woven on a foot pedalled loom; fabrics, kimonos, ties and pictures to buy. Crafts people sew beautiful brocade omi, and will show you the work close...More
