Textile Machinery Pavilion
One step ahead will let you timeslip into a spinning mill in the Taisho (1912 – 1926) and the early part of Showa eras. This spacious floor that stretches more than 3,468 ㎡ is in the spinning mill originally built in the Taisho era, and the pillars, the beams, and the red brick walls are still used just the way they have been. From the early spinning and weaving tools to the present textile machinery equipped with mechatronics, approximately 100 machines are displayed in one hall. The technological advances can be understood crystal clear by the demonstrations and dynamic exhibitions. You can watch an operator demonstrate spinning threads and weaving fabric right in front of you so that you can gain a real-life experience of genuine crafting.
