saltandtobaccomuseum

One would not expect the Tobacco & Salt Museum to be hosting an exquisite exhibition, displaying a collection of high-class colorful kimono fabrics. The exhibition’s title is pretty self-explanatory. Kimonos and Accessories from the Edo and Taisho periods will be assembled by bag merchant Kiyoshi Nakamura. Items include wallet-like hakoseko, tobacco pouches, and batik-printed sari imported from India and Java. Trying to figure out the intricate imagery in the prints is part of the exhibition’s fun and adds a stronger participative draw to the museum-goers.  There are over 200 items to gawk at, with depictions of hair styles and cosmetic tools for a full immersion into past toilette and fashion customs.
