Shiori-an

Museum in Downtown Kyoto

Our Review

Located in a large merchant’s house, this kimono-shop-museum walks visitors through the architecture of a traditional building built in the daibeizukuri style. You can also see the back part of the house that was converted into a Western-style building around the turn of last century (when Japan became fascinated with all things Western), as well as kimonos on display. There is an English brochure available.
