  • Before I start, I'm not sure why 'Type of visit' has various categories for 'Family'. Anyway, I visit Nishijin with my mother few days back. It's a great place to learn about Kimono, and various types...  more »
  • Nice Kimono Show and interesting shop for nice Japanese gifts and Kimonos. There is a weaving demonstration also,  more »
  • We came here for a brief look, including a Kimono show, which was just right to give some more information and views of this traditional japanese dress.  more »

  • A horrible selection of products. Mostly are made in China. With the very poor quality zip. Maybe the small shops near other shrines have better selection and choices. My experiences after living here for 5 months.
  • I've been very impressed with all the cultural institutions in Kyoto except this one. They pretty much cater to tourists - They bus them in every hour. The quality of the fabric and design aren't that remarkable. Compared to other craft places in Kyoto, I wish Nishijin has more integrity. It just feels really touristy. It's still great if you want an overview of the textile history.
  • What an amazing place to visit to learn about the history of textiles in Kyoto, and Japan! The woven displays are exquisite, and the one-on-one sewing experience is well worth the small fee. I will go back for sure
  • It's really fun watching the artists utilize the various types of looms. Such a fun time and incredibly educational. A MUST in Kyoto IMO. After, definitely walk the streets around the center. Incredible local architecture.
  • Interesting little place with a decent cafe. Not a place to visit if you are looking to purchase kimono though, unless you want a fake silk repro
