The development of today’s Kaihara can only be achieved through the support and cooperation of local people. In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of its foundation, we opened the Kaihara Historical Museum in 1996 to express our gratitude for the bonds that we have shared with local people and to further deepen those bonds in the future. The history of Kaihara from its foundation in the Meiji era to the present day as well as changes in manufacturing technology of Bingo kasuri, that helped build on each era, are on exhibit in an easy-to-understand format.
