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. Through explanation and demonstration, we can easily grasp the progress in technology. With demonstrations from staff, you can see the spinning of thread and weaving of cloths before your eyes for a real first-hand experience of the process.
