Towel Museum, Imabari

(160+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
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. Plan to visit Towel Museum during your Imabari vacation using our convenient Imabari holiday planner.
