Kyoto By the Sea
With the concept of touching the nature around Kyoto, we have invited cosplayers to explore the sea, the forests and the tea fields in the neighbouring areas, taking local transport to get a feel for the area! This page looks at the experiences that the cosplayers that went to the woodland area experienced!
There may be some parts that were created especially for the cosplayers and are not able to be booked.
Kyotango City, Yuigagaura Beach
The Yuigaura Beach is a beach where you can see beautiful sunsets.
It is an impressive beach on the north facing coast which has a stunning blue color that is slightly different from the image of the Sea of Japan due to its wide range of shallow water.
The sunset from spring to summer is beautiful, and it has been selected as one of the 100 best sunsets in Japan.

Tayu Tango Chirimen (Tayu Machinery Co. Ltd,.）
We went on a tour of Tayu's factory where they weave and dye fabric!
Tayu makes fabrics with a special technique that involves skillfully twisting it in special water!
This is done by a twisting machine that further twists the raw yarn wound around a pipe while applying water. The thread is twisted with a predetermined number of twists.
This brand is highly regarded by major maisons in the “Tango Textile Exhibition” held in Paris every year as well as in Japan.
The factory tour is amazing!
Even the general public can tour the factory. Of course tourists come and visit, but also school excursions and students studying textiles also come to visit!
You can visit around 60 looms that are actually in operation. (However, it does not operate on Sundays and public holidays)

Komaneko -Konpira Shrine
Konpira shrine’s “Komaneko(Stone Cat)” is a rare guardian cat deity in Japan.
Usually, the symbolic symbol that must be found in shrines is the “Koma Inu(Stone Lion-dogs)”, but the Konpira Shrine has a very rare “Komaneko”. It’s very cute!
But why cats? The reason is related to the birthplace of Tango Chirimen.
Tango Mineyama is the birthplace of Tango Chirimen.
About 300 years ago, in the Edo period, the technique of crepe weaving here was established here.
Chirimen helped to spread the word of Tango, and Mineyama soon developed as a prosperous land for silk fabrics, in fact as one of the nation's largest!
The town of Mineyama was lined with chirimen wholesalers and yarn stores, crowded with weaving companies from the Kansai region, as well as weaving companies in the surrounding villages flourishing, and farmers using silkworms to produce silk.
The main enemy of silkworms are "mice and rats". The rats eat and destroys the silkworms and cocoons, causing serious damage to the farmers. That's where the cats come in! With cats being kept in the same room, mice and rats were chased away and the culture was saved!
So these guardian deities were seen as "the guardian gods of weaving" in this area of Tango.
