Moreover everyone who belong to the several indigenous industry are particular about the material made in the region and the traditional way to produce products.
Tachibana Textile Laboratory.
The laboratory belong to Onomichi canvas factory.
Their canvas are dyed by vegetable materials and the industry wastes in Onomichi.
For example, Japanese medlars, kiwis, and scraps of iron, etc…
They Dye canvas by several unique materials, and Tachibana Textile store is so nice atmosphere.
Actually their store belong to the factory of Onomichi canvas.

They always produce the canvas day after day at the factory.
Here every machines keep on moving for braiding tread and producing canvas.
In addition, they grow cotton at the garden close to the factory, and produce the thread from the cotton by themselves.
They have an inspired thought for ecological lifestyle.

Last March we made a trip to Taiwan, and looked around some nice places.
Firstly we’ve been to 九份 that is an original model of MIYAZAKI’s SPIRITED AWAY (Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi).
Last summer we took part in the OHAYO CAFE that my friend organized the weekend relaxed event.
Artists and workers in the field of several categories usually gather together at this event.
And that time we went to the camping area close to Mt. Fuji.
Some people open the hair salon under the sky:)
There is a play space for children.
And some horses are in the stable.
The tree house is made by hand.
“GOEMON BURO”. You could soak in the bathtub outside.
And a soft cream shop:) yummy…
It’s so relaxed time and nice atmosphere very close to nature.
Hope you have a great day.
