“Flowery Kyomachiya: Admire Autumn Flowers” – Opening to the Public Days <10:00 - 17:00, Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from September 1 to October 15> *Closed on September 29 – October 1

We welcome you to our flowery Kyomachiya with early autumnal decorations.

This fall, we will display a special autumnal folding screen, a “Kikuzu Byobu (chrysanthemum screen),” and other traditional tools of the Sugimoto family.
