First held in 2021, the Fuji Textile Week event was designed to revitalize traditional industries and support the local Fujiyoshida community. This part of Yamanashi Prefecture has been a textile-producing region for over a thousand years, and the legacy of this continues to influence the city's identity.
Billing itself as the only textile art event in Japan, the exhibition – which actually runs for almost a month – will include a variety of fabric-based works on display from both domestic and international creators. In addition, there will be sales of fabric for anyone wanting to stock up for some DIY projects.
This is a paid event, with adult admission priced at 1200 yen. Tickets can be arranged ahead of time online, but they can also be purchased at the venue on the day.
