Nishijin Textile Center
Nishijin-ori, which is famous throughout the world, has been woven in the Nishijin area of Kyoto city since the end of the sixteenth century. It uses silk as its raw material and is known as one of the highest-grade textiles in Japan. Not only kimono and obi, but also neckties, dresses, gowns, tablecloths, and others are made of Nishijin-ori. You will enjoy a kimono fashion show, a demonstration of weaving, and displays of Nishijin silk fabrics.

Kiyomizu Temple
Kiyomizu Temple is one of the oldest temples in Kyoto, and dates back to the 8th century. The temple is noted for the unique style of its architecture. Its main hall stands on a cliff, with a wooden platform in front from which a panoramic view of Kyoto can be enjoyed. Most of the present buildings were reconstructed in 1633, but they reflect the style of the original ones, suggesting the style of residences of the 8th and 9th centuries.
