Itchiku Kubota, the master artist who revived the Tsujigahana tie-dyeing technique of the Muromachi period (1338-1573) has a dream of building a museum for his works in the shadow of Mt. Fuji. His dream was realized in his lifetime, and the museum stands today with majestic view of nearby Mt. Fuji and serene Lake Kawaguchi. The museum was built using wood from Hiba cypress trees that are more than 1,000 years old. In addition to the gallery of his dyed kimono creations and glass beads collection, there is a Japanese tea house, and a garden with a waterfall and walking path where you can take full advantage of the beautiful surrounding natural environment.
