Although it was founded in 1872 (Meiji 3), it has a long history, but also active in advanced attempts such as offering costumes used in Hollywood movies and dramas etc. The soft light that illuminates the room from the window facing the north and the sound of the loom that does not stop are very scenery of Kiryu.
