Kimono takes on the next level of elegance at the Ome Kimono Museum. The museum building is remodeled from a two centuries-old warehouse of a private house. Gaze on extravagant garments worn by Imperial princesses, samurai families, the aristocratic class, and merchants during the premodern Edo period (1603-1867). There are also clothing from the Silk Road in China and Central Asia, and bridal robes from Edo-period Tokyo.
Looking at the permanent exhibits of Prince and Princess Nashimoto's costumes from the Taisho period (1912-1926) may bring you back in time. Learn about the garments and their history at the museum.
