Would you like to experience something very special during your stay in Osaka? If that is the case, we recommend you try Nishijin-ori weaving at Hotel Plaza Osaka. Nishijin-ori (Nishijin fabric) is a high-quality traditional silk textile produced in the Nishijin area, Kyoto. It was originated in the 800s (the Heian Period) and has been passed down for about twelve centuries.
Nishijin textile has been used for kimono (traditional Japanese garment) and kimono-related accessories. Nowadays, Nishijin-ori is becoming very popular worldwide with diverse age groups as a variety of products are created using Nishijin textiles such as wallets, purses, neckties, stuffed animals, etc.
Hotel Plaza Osaka arranged a special section for their guests to experience Nishijin-ori weaving. You might think that it would be too difficult, but worry not, their English-speaking staff members will kindly help you make your Nishijin textile. If you are curious about this fine Japanese tradition, feel free to contact them anytime.
