  • We had booked a course for silk scarf staining in the shibori Museum. We were very warmly received and were able to make us equal to work. First, there were some explanations about the procedure, and then we were allowed to choose the desired colors and design patterns on hand. A very nice, good English speaking woman explained each step and helped also there where it was required. After the colors were dried, everyone has his scarf, fabric looked like a small packet, along with one of the employees pulled apart. A short film about shibori techniques, then a walk through a small exhibition, and finally followed on the 1st floor of the fitting of a real kimono. Although the Museum is very small, it has us but impressed, particularly the incredibly delicate and time consuming techniques, which unfortunately soon be consigned to the past are, as the only woman in Kyoto, which dominates it, is more than 80 years old and No student has.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
