The Fabric Dyeing Studio Wakuwakukan is located nearby the Uesugi family mausoleum. The studio has lessons in handweaving and safflower dyeing, a gallery of kimono made of Yonezawa silk and a charming little cafe. The Yonezawa method of silk fabric production blossomed during the middle of the Edo period. The characteristic of Yonezawa fabric is "kusakizome," using natural plant dyes to create delicate shades of color.
