The Nakai and Ochiai districts in Shinjuku were once the center of dye production and fabric-dyeing activity in Tokyo. In honor of this illustrious history, the districts will be displaying dyed noren along the Myoshoji River, strung beautifully across the river. The stretch becomes colorful and especially enchanting in the wind — setting the scene for a perfect stroll. Additionally, some factories will be opening their doors for tours through which you can participate in dyeing some pieces. Catch a glimpse of the age-old Japanese tradition.
All day. Free.
