Towel Museum, Imabari

3.1
#1 of 9 in Museums in Imabari
More shop than museum, Towel Museum sells colorful towels in various size and interesting patterns. Located within a modern building, the museum occupies three floors and features quirky towel sculptures resembling cakes, breads, burgers, and popcorn. You can observe the actual process of making towels, starting from the raw cotton, to spinning and weaving on the automatic loom. Relax in the garden enclosed by citrus trees, and wrap up your visit with a quick snack at the onsite restaurant.

  • Named Imabari towel Art Museum to showcase and sell what is mostly foreign-made. Anything of Imabari towel and bite to say things, there is a lower-priced products. Differences should be understood soon if you touch it, but Japanese Imabari towel is completely different touch.

  • Refrained from moving, stopped by to purchase trip Imabari towel. Was interested in anime stuff, such as Moomin is through the neighborhood. Visited the Museum takes charge only through w towel purchase. As a result, very happy. Since there are not in Japan, so that other people's reviews, I feel permitting especially is to bother much. What concerns touch so far by the piles of knitting and learned. Interesting we visited, prepared space to eliminate work processes. If you buy towels all sorts of quick, assortment of rich here, is recommended. Also, coverage on the second floor, souvenir towels outside one floor entirely equipped, forget buying souvenirs. Towel Art Gallery Limited Edition, double belly bun is besides the naming and impact, while taste refreshing sweet discreet and is recommended.
