Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Chubu / Koshinetsu / Yamanashi Prefecture / Minamitsuru-gun / Fujikawaguchiko-machi / Itchiku Kubota Art Museum
Explore the one-of-a-kind collection of kimonos at Itchiku Kubota Art Museum. Itchiku Kubota's kimonos employ dyeing and decorating techniques that have been virtually obsolete since the 17th century. The artist also designed the entire hillside museum in a style inspired by Gaudi; stroll the gardens to fully appreciate the scenic location, with views of Mt. Fuji and the nearby lake. As a bonus treat, don't forget to have a cup of warm tea in the adjacent tea house.

Itchiku Kubota Art Museum reviews
The kimonos are exquisite. Well worth a visit. There was also a video which showed how they were made - very impressive. more »
Visited the museum even though we are not museum people but we were pleasantly surprised. Very quirky building and environment which is good for photos. Inside is not big but you will learn enough... more »
For anyone with an interest in textiles this is a must see. Take the time to watch the short film first to understand what you are looking at as the techniques used are incredibly complex. I had... more »
Very beautiful kimono art pieces. A worthy visit for art lovers and fashion oriented people. The cafe is really beautiful, but the prices are steep.
A very nice museum with a very nice garden. You can get into part of the garden for free. In late November it was very beautiful with the autumn colors. The kimonos exposed inside are real art works, but I find the entrance fee a bit pricey. After the visit in the museum you can walk in the part of the garden on the back of the building, which is also nice and without crowds because no one goes there apparently. The architecture of the museum is also unique. Worth a visit if you're spending some time in Kawaguchiko, maybe in the afternoon when the Fuji is not visible and the sun has gone down. It takes about 40min/1h to visit.
It's consider expensive for the entrance ticket. Not much to see during end of Autumn / beginning of Winter. Probably nicer scenery during late Spring/ early Autumn.
An absolute must-see in the Kawaguchiko/Five Lakes area. The coloring and textural qualities of the tsujigahana is absolutely breathtaking and very unique.
The entire place is a work of art! This might be my favorite place around Kawaguchiko; it’s the home and studio of artist Itchiku Kubota and is a feast for any architecture and design buffs. The kimonos are incredible (obviously) and there are also beautiful gardens and a cafe to reflect in. It is so much more than ‘just kimonos’.
