With its pleasant texture and simple coloration, the Kurume-kasuri textile, manufactured in and around Kurume city, Fukuoka prefecture, evokes somehow a sense of nostalgia. In the beginning of the 19th century, a 12 year-old young girl got the idea from faded thread of her old cotton clothes and started dyeing and weaving the fabric. Local farmers followed her lead, and creating ‘kasuri’ became a popular side business of farmers in Chikugo area, spreading its name as people’s clothes across the country. Producing the fabric requires thirty different steps of handworks. There is a procedure called ‘kukuri,’ where the threads are twined tightly enough so that kasuri patterns are protected from dye. This procedure, along with the skills of twining professionals, is considered to create the textile with great depth. Over recent years, combination of the traditional method with modern taste has been seen often in newly designed products such as accessories and clothes, gathering even more attention than before.

【Quality of 9】Arita Ware -Origin of Japanese pottery-
Arita Ware is the porcelain which laid the foundation of Japanese ceramic ware. It has a long history going back to early 17th century when Korean potters found porcelain clay, materials of pottery, in Izumiyama, Arita Town, and baked pottery for the first time in Japan. That’s the start of long history of Japanese pottery. In those days, potteries were shipped from the Imari Port, as Arita did not face the sea. So people came to call them Imari ware. Arita wares are now known in foreign countries as “IMARI” which has long played a key role in introducing Japanese traditional beauty to the world. The design of Arita pottery has gradually changed due to the times and through relationship with foreign countries. Arita ware has developed many styles of arts including “early Imari style” in which patterns were painted in indigo blue and “Kinrande style” in which red and gold paints were abundantly used. We offer pottery demonstrations by a potter. There is also a facility where you can make drawings on pottery. Why don’t you try it as a memory of your trip?
