It is more or less a shopping mall. It is not impressive at all. And it was really strange that they are not selling the towel only but also foods and sourveniors...

More of towel store selling different pieces of towel. They had a small section showing the old weaving machine and a modern mill. That's about it.

We went to this so called museum by train and bicycle, which was quiet difficult enough. It is nothing but a big shopping mall for bus tourists. The choice of the towel creations was not really, what we've seen in other Ehime shops. Maybe if you are a Mummin or and Snoopy fan, it should be o.k.. We found out later, that we would have been better choosen the new Imabari Texport, which is in Imabari center, and seemed much more interesting on the website. Lessons learned...

Imabari is the town of making towels and they supply 70% of Japan's towel consumption. Quite a good place to buy towel, lots of patterns and color to choose.

The name of this attraction can be quite mis-leading. We arrived early in the morning. For me, it looked more like a mini shopping mall than boring museum. There is one floor for food. There are 2 to 3 more levels for various types of products (not limited to towels).

We started from viewing the weaving machines. The interesting part started when gigantic moomin & family appear. The art works are great.

I did shop after a short tour. Most items are made in China instead of Japan. However, I love the characters & designs. Therefore, I too got something back home.
