The Some no Komichi committee will be holding English guided tours for those who are interested in kimono and its beautiful dyeing techniques. On these tours, you’ll enjoy a special event of “Konya Meguri” with English speaking guides, in which you can visit some fabric dyers and other related craftspeople shops in the Waseda area.

If you would like, you can participate in a fabric-dyeing workshop costing ¥500.There will be two tour times, one in the morning (9.15am – 12.15pm) and one in the afternoon (2.15pm – 4.15pm). While the tour is free you do need to register for a space here for the morning tour and here for the afternoon. If you’re planning to take part in the workshop, wear something that could potentially get stained as you’ll be handling inks. Tours will begin at Ochiai Station on the Seibu Shinjuku Line and will finish in Nakai.
