kimono museum

while googling this, I came across 2:

babibubebo.com/2006/…

http://www3.kitanet.ne.jp/~kimono/oume/index.html

both locations look very pretty in the photographs, but can anyone comment on which would be easiest to go to, or maybe someone has been to both and comment on the museums? I think I would like to go visit one of these and maybe the secon one would be more convenient?

I haven't been there, but Oume is closer to Tokyo (about 1hour or so from Shinjuku by Chuo Rapid train; sometimes there are direct trains up to Ome but you'd have to change there or at Tachikawa). Some kimonos of the imperial household is shown there.

The other location is in Kawaguchi-ko area, so if you plan to visit the lake by Mt. Fuji, you might as well check it out.

I suppose you'd have better occasion to look at Kimono in Kyoto, although I can't tell at the moment exactly where.

While in Asakusa, you might check out the Edo Shitamachi Traditional Craft Center in Hisago-dori Arcade: …taito.lg.jp/index/…index.html

traditional crafts center sounds good! thanks...

and yes, I am hoping to go somewhere to have a good look at Fuji-san...i had a destination in mind, but just now noticed I didn't write it down in my itinerary....maybe I'll combine that with the museum....

I must admit I keep forgetting it will be November when I visit....I was thinking of a sunny day at the lake ....LOL

Hey Maple,

I am the photographer behind babibubebo.com and japanphotoguide.com, so I thought I would throw in my two cents...

The Itchiku Kubota Kimono Museum is incredible and not far from Hakone and next to Fuji Five Lakes. I highly recommend going if you have the chance. Make sure to watch the video (they have an English version) to learn about him and why his kimono's are so special.

The traditional craft centre mentioned by Yobeecool is great. You can spend considerable time and money there :-).

Itchiki Kubota's museum sounds fascinating & worth a trip to see his amazing works -thanks for bringing it to our attention Meyem. Japan just has the best small museums in the world!

Here's the JNTO page in English for instructions on how to get there - I will visit myself next time I'm in the area. There's also a Japanese tea house there where you can relax & view the garden.
