Itchiku Kubota Art Museum, Fujikawaguchiko-machi

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.

As a bonus treat, don't forget to have a cup of warm tea in the adjacent tea house.

  • This is coming from someone that doesn't have much interest in art. I found the entire visit thoroughly enjoying. The location was beautiful even in winter, the tea was delicious and the kimonos outstanding. I enjoyed learning the story of Itchiku and realising how much skill and time is required to make the kimonos. Would recommend to anyone in the area.
  • I really like kimonos so when I heard this museum was dedicated to a master dyer I wanted to check it. I wasn't expecting much but this really surprised me! I loved it and have gone twice since. My only complaint is that there are not enough souvenirs about Kubota's work.
  • Amazing garden! The place is actually really surprising and somewhat magic! Seems the artist really intended to create a different atmosphere! Each kimono is a beautiful work of art! Pay attention to the details of the front door!
  • Beautiful kimono! Informative video. Do pay the ¥500 to see the glass bead displays as it will give you a better insight into the life of ITCHIKU KUBOTA and what had inspired him. The fee includes two drinks too where you can see Mt Fuji so it's well worth it. Save some time for a walk at the peaceful garden too!
  • The whole museum is breathtaking. It is a marvel of beautiful architecture and manicured gardens. I was fascinated by the amount of detail that had been put in, there wasn't a single room that didn't amaze. A seamless blend of modern and traditional.

Where to stay in Fujikawaguchiko-machi

The lakeside resort town of Fujikawaguchiko-machi offers a great variety accommodations, reflective of the diverse reasons people have for visiting the town. Some simple guesthouses and hostels dot the more modest streets of the main urban areas, while more upmarket, resort-style hotels with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) are located close to the lake, or sit in privileged positions just out of town. Campsites and inns in the surrounding rural areas provide particularly good options for those just wanting to get up Mount Fuji.
