Bushu Nakajima Kouya


Nakajima Konya was established in 1837 (Tempo 8). Konya originally indicates a person who dyes cloths with indigo dye, and later a shop selling dye products. Indigo dyeing which has been playing an important role in people's lives is also known as "Japan blue", and its taste increases as exposed to air. At Nakajima Konya, visitors can take a look at the indigo dying process and actually can experience dyeing handkerchiefs or scarves.
