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 between 500-2000 yen.
There will be two tour times, one in the morning (10am – 12pm) and one in the afternoon (2pm – 4pm). The morning tour will begin in Takadanobaba and feature a marble dyeing workshop (2,000 yen) while the afternoon workshop will start in Waseda and feature a Kinsai gold-plating workshop (500 – 1,000 yen). There are only 3 places available on each tour and reservations are required, so be speedy.
