Tachibana Co., Ltd.
From November 24th to November 28th, 2022, a kimono exhibition will be held in Nagano City!
Please see how the traditional Japanese clothing “kimono” has changed from the Momoyama period to the present day.
Tachibana Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Nagano City, Nagano URL:
https://www.tachibana-group.co.jp/) was founded 70 years ago with the “Textile Japan Exhibition – Patterns Traveling Through Time” held in Ginza, Tokyo. It will be held from November 24, 2022 (Thursday) to November 28, 2022 (Monday) at a special venue on the 2nd floor of Tachibana Co., Ltd. Nagano Main Store, which is about to celebrate its anniversary next year.
More than 200 items will be on display, including the Keicho kosode worn by Yododono, concubine of Toyotomi Hideyoshi 420 years ago. In addition, Kosode from the early Edo period (about 390 years ago), 12 important intangible cultural property holders (Living National Treasures) from the Meiji, Taisho, Showa, and Heisei eras, and many hair ornaments for court nobles from the Momoyama period to the Edo period. It will be the supreme gems of the early, middle, late, and Meiji periods.
Among them, special items such as “200 Tortoiseshell Yuki Tsumugi” and “Empress Michiko’s Furisode”, which are said to be impossible to make in modern times, will be specially exhibited. Let me do it.
“Kosode” is said to be the prototype of modern kimono. From the Momoyama period to the Edo period, our predecessors gathered and developed colorful and varied patterns into kosode through various wisdom and ingenuity. We will also introduce the beauty of kosode, which has captivated women over time, and the accessories around kosode that tickle the fashion of the times.
By exhibiting works by important cultural property holders (living national treasures) who are the highest peaks in the dyeing and weaving industry of each era, and by exhibiting them together, interest in kimono that traces the evolution of design through time will be further deepened. We propose a moment.
Experience the technological progress and lifestyle that has changed the traditional culture, traditional crafts, and traditional clothes of Japan, called “kimono,” from everyday wear to fashion in line with the times.
A kimono guide will also be at the venue on the day of the event. Please take the time to listen!
