Arimatsu Shibori Festival at Arimatsu Station
June 3 - 4, 2017

Arimatsu in Midori Ward is a 400 year-old artisan’s village famous for producing kimonos, handkerchiefs, and shibori – the term for several methods of dyeing silk, hemp, and cotton cloth with a pattern by binding, stitching, folding, twisting, or compressing it. This festival features a parade, shibori demonstrations performed by some of the town’s master shibori craftsmen, and a workshop where you can tie dye a small towel for ¥1,000. There’s also an Art Craft Fair where both amateur and professional artists will be exhibiting and selling original works. It will be held directly outside Arimatsu Station on the Meitetsu Nagoya Line.
