Fujiyoshida has been producing textiles for more than 1,000 years and is attracting attention from creators.
Fujiyoshida City is an hour and a half away from Tokyo by highway bus. It has prospered as a textile town for more than 1,000 years thanks to the lush green scenery and the cool water that flows down from Mt. Fuji. Today, it is attracting attention as a city that continues to innovate while connecting traditions, such as holding exhibitions and art exhibitions of hataya, which has challenged the creation of new textile values ​​in collaboration with creators and artists.
