Enjoy Kaga Yuzen

Enjoy Kaga Yuzen

[April 2012] I wanted to see how they make Kaga Yuzen, a traditional dyeing craft in Kanazawa, Japan, so went to the Chamber of Traditional Industry of Kaga Yuzen .

But because it was lunch time, the demonstration was not on.

So, instead, we tried to dress in a kimono dyed in Yuzen technique.

The colours of yuzen are generally pale and refined.

I chose the most colourful one, but I must say it did not suit me very much…

After that, we went downstairs to experience the actual dyeing.

It is organised for tourists as an easy colouring, but very enjoyable.

There is a shop, too, of course and I enjoyed shopping there as well.
