The city of Kawaguchi: cross the centuries through artistic discoveries

The city has many museums including the Kubota Itchiku Museum of Art named after its creator. This renowned dyer artist has dedicated his entire life to recreating the kimono dyeing technique called Tsujigahana , used in the Muromachi period (14th to 16th century).

The museum presents the ultimate work of the artist-craftsman: The Symphony of Light , a set of 46 kimonos illustrating a landscape changing with the seasons. Only winter and autumn could be completed before the artist's death. He left it to his apprentices to complete the picture by adding representations of summer, spring and the universe, which brought the collection to 80 pieces.

Another curiosity, the Kawaguchiko Music Forest theme park. Taking on European airs, this museum offers the opportunity to discover automatic musical instruments from Europe. The centerpiece? A French organ dating from 1905, 5 meters high and 13 meters wide, playing every half hour!
