Overall it is catered to tourists to give them a bit of history about the textiles industry in Kyoto. There is not a ton of information as the museum is light on content. There are demonstrations of the weaving and a Kimono showing but it's...More
I discovered this place by watching an aging video on Japan. Nishijin is a textile industry in the heart of Kyoto and easily accessible from most hotels by bus. The hourly kimono show was delightful and easily one of the highlight of my Japan experience....More
If you are interested in Japanese textiles, this is perfect. There are areas where you can see kimono fabrics woven on a foot pedalled loom; fabrics, kimonos, ties and pictures to buy. Crafts people sew beautiful brocade omi, and will show you the work close...More
Not everyone's cup of tea but this is more than a textile factory. There's a real effort in Japan to save the kimono tradition and if you time your visit to catch a floor show you will see why.

We made a brief visit to Nishijin Textile Center recently. It is located a little west of Imperial Palace on Horikawa Street near its intersection with Imadegawa. In addition to exhibits, there is a nice store selling a wide variety of authentic nishijin products. Recommended.
By 2016, the limitations of handmade handkerchiefs at affordable prices (made in Kyoto, using traditional cotton, dyes, practices, approximately $10-30USD ea.) had, according to all sources I was able to find in a rapid but thorough two-day search, been reduced to the Nishijin Textile Center....More
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many
shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.

I cannot confirm the denial by N_and_R. I purchased cotton materials and was thoroughly impressed with their collection. I would recommend anyone interested in textiles to take a trip up that way. It's not far from everything, Kyoto being a pretty small town.
