I visited here because I love visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites. And this is one of those times when I was rather disappointed. A good part of the complex was under renovation, possibly in anticipation of more people coming. Until then, only one wing was...More
Honestly, no idea why this place became a world heritage site. There is very little in terms of original buildings and things to see. Interesting to see the traditional silk weaving technology but that alone is not worth the price. The place is not really...More
It is the site of silk factory which started operation before 145 years ago. At that time, it was the largest factory in Japan, and large machines and warehouses remained in the premises. There was also luxurious mansions for instructors who were invited from France,...More

On specific days there are people that demonstrate silk reeling...More

When we arrived, the queue was already there. Lots of local travellers. Drove around as we noticed that the parking nearby was expensive. Anyway, later we spend about 500 yen for 2.5hrs parking. As we didn't really understand what that fellow was trying to tell...More
