In short, it is a small museum displaying kimonos made using tie dye method. But the museum cannot be justified by one sentence. If you appreciate art, this museum will inspire you. It is the work of Itchiku Kubota who spent the later part of...More

The Kubota Itchiku is a work of art in and of itself. Lovely landscaping and amazing wood carvings accompany the kimono collection. I was stunned by the beauty of the pieces on display, as well as by the location. As a perk the museum shop...More

The kimonos made by Itchiku Kubota and his assistants are extraordinary pieces of art. They are like paintings made we a time-consuming dieing technic. The museum itself consists of two very special buildings in a garden full of unexpected items. One of the buildings also...More

We caught our first partial glimpse of Mount Fuji from just outside the museum, but it's what's inside that is the attraction. There is a stunning collection of kimonos, and it is amazing to see a triptych of them forming a landscape.

Captures you before you even enter the beautiful garden grounds. Easy to get to, just catch the tourist bus and Kubota Itchiku Art Museum has it's own bus stop. I'm not big on museums but this is beautiful; so tranquil.

It is difficult to think of kimono as art, but Kubota has indeed elevated tie-dye into an amazing art form. Be sure to request to watch the 25 minute video (in English) which will educate you on the amazing techniques used to produce the works....More

if you love art, especially textile art, you will be blown away by what you see here! Absolutely beautiful--although i still don't really understand the process of how the kimonos are created---

This smallish museum was created by the Japanese textil artist Itchiku Kubota and shows his works. It's very centered around him but it's all super aesthetic - the main building, the doors, the steps, the garden. Recommended!

This place is such a rip-off: 1300 yen entrance fee for an adult, and there is only one exhibition room (the size of one medium exhibition room of National Gallery in London) only with around 20 kimonos. OK the Kimonos are beautiful, but we saw...More
