This year, various kimono artwork of renowned artist Itchiku Kubota, who revived the Tsujigahana tie-dyeing technique of the Muromachi period (1338-1573), will be exhibited.

The KOTO is a traditional Japanese instrument made from kiri wood and has 13 strings. The origin of the KOTO began in China and was imported to Japan in the 8th century. In the early days, the KOTO was only played by royalty. During the Edo period (1603-1868), the KOTO spread among the upper class society and eventually to the middle class. Today, the KOTO has become one of the most popular Japanese instruments.
