The town where the female workers lived


Kiryu’s textile industry was the most popular area where many buildings were built in Taisho from the early Showa era. At that time, Kiryu had lots of stores such as buyers, kimono shops, dyeing companies, and textile related dealers. There are many buildings that make you feel the lady of female workers, such as merchants and textile factories, dormitories and public baths. There are many buildings that are renovated and used contemporarily, such as cafe, workshop, restaurant, and so many events are held, so it is an area that is perfect for enjoying the town walking. You can enjoy the dressing of kimono at reasonable prices on the first Saturday so please join us!
