“Kosoen” is an indigo dyeing studio located about a 20-minute walk from Ome Station on the JR Ome Line.
The indigo dyeing solution of Kosoen is made by a method called “natural indigo ash juice fermentation”. It is an ancient Japanese manufacturing method used since the Edo period, and uses only natural ingredients without any chemicals. Though the dying process takes time, the indigo becomes more reddish and shines with each dyeing.
The deep “indigo”, which is different from “blue” and “navy blue” is called “Japan Blue”, because of its beauty, and it is said that it surprised the world when first seen. Indigo dyeing experience classes are also held at Kosoen.
