Ohbora Kimono Shop

染めと呉服 大洞

Textiles and dyeing play a critical role in the culture and history of Hida and Gifu Prefecture as a whole. A centuries-old craft, the locals here are rightly proud of dyeing which has been passed down from generation to generation. Nowadays, even visitors can learn from the local craftspeople and classes and workshops are available even for beginners.

Braiding bracelets and keychains can be achieved in approximately 30 minutes and it's a wonderful experience to see and learn from the experts. Ohbora Kimono Shop even rent kimonos so visitors can try them on and stroll around the canal-lined streets resplendent in the much-loved Japanese garment.
