Nishijin, the main area of ​​the tour, is famous for producing textiles, but it is also a place where temples were gathered by Toyotomi Hideyoshi’s land readjustment. Among them, exhibitions of crafts and art will be held at three temples of the Daihonzan class. Myokenji, the main venue, has a history of 700 years as an imperial messenger temple recognized by Emperor Godaigo, and has a history of being used as a regular residence of Hideyoshi Toyotomi. It is also known as a Rinpa temple, and there is a grave of Korin Ogata at the top of the sub-temple. Myogakuji is a temple where Sen no Rikyu held tea ceremonies and Oda Nobunaga used it as an inn in Kyoto. It is said that Nobunaga came to Kyoto 20 times, 18 of which he spent at this temple. Myorenji Temple has a deep relationship with intellectuals, and there are fusuma paintings by Tohaku Hasegawa, “Rissho Ankoku Ron” copied by Koetsu Honami, and the grave of Bairei Kono, the founder of the Kyoto art world. All temples have works of the Kano school, and among them, it is also the family temple of Myokakuji.
A guided tour of crafts and art exhibitions held at temples that are deeply related not only to Kyoto but also to Japanese history. There will be a tour of an exhibition full of highlights of about 40 artists in total, as well as a work-and-living workshop that is usually inaccessible.

The active gardener unit “Ueshi” remodeled a room of a temple into a garden that you can enjoy indoors without foliage plants. Since 2016, we have been exhibiting at Premiere Vision Paris, which is held twice a year in France, as a project of our partner company KYOTO Leather.

You can appreciate the works of artists who combine tradition and art and express themselves at the boundaries of various fields, such as the glass sculptor and life craftsman Sho Honami, whose grandfather is the 15th generation Honami.

A workshop tour in the real Nishijin area where work and home are integrated, which cannot be experienced in a place opened to show Traditional craft workshop tours are also held, but on this tour, you will not be looking at the workshops just to see them, but will also be visiting the actual workshops of craftsmen who work and live together. Since it is both a workshop and a home, we will visit a place that can be called a sanctuary where only people related to work can enter.
In addition, there will be a tour where you can observe the production process of a new product made from recycled Japanese candles created by a Japanese candle workshop aiming for zero waste, and then enjoy the illumination of the temple using Japanese candles.
Just like textiles that are designed to minimize waste, please know that the respect for nature behind the appearance and behind the scenes, which is at the root of Japanese aesthetics, is still alive today. .
