【Experiencing Surigata Yuzenzome】(摺型友禅染体験)

Surigata Yuzenzome is one of the traditional techniques of Kyo-yuzen dyeing: a pattern, carved by a knife, is placed on fabric for making kimonos. Then, using a brush, the pattern is dyed onto the fabric. When using multiple colors to dye, finer patterns and more patterns must be used.

The manufacturer of this pattern paper, a technician of traditional crafts, has been certified as a traditional craftsman for the Kyo-yuzen dyeing division in our country.

In this experiential event, we will use paper patterns to dye tote bags and T-shirts with our own hands.

Ryoma-kan is a store selling tourist souvenirs and traditional craft items, located in the Ryomadori shopping street of Fushimi, Kyoto. The shop is named after Sakamoto Ryoma: a patriot who played the biggest role in the Meiji Revolution, and who used to stay at a nearby Teradaya Inn. We are planning a number of tourism events that make use of history and tradition such as: historical roundtable discussions, walking around town dressed up in traditional clothing from that period, rogaining (a game where you visit regional resources and compete by acquiring points), and various other Japanese culture experiential events.
