Initiatives in the
old home town of Imabari
Imabari is well-known for its towels and, as a good port in the Seto Inland Sea,
it is an historic town that has long-since prospered from its textile and shipbuilding industries.
FUJITAKA TOWEL is also involved in preserving the history of Imabari through initiatives such as the opening up to the public of the 100 year old “Yagi Syoten Main Office” as an historical museum.
The “Yagi Syoten” Museum
The building was a valuable, traditional structure when it was built in 1918 in Hashihama, Imabari.
It was the former residence of Kamezaburo Yagi, the former mayor of Hashihama Village and known at the time as a pioneer in crab-canning boats technology.
FUJITAKA TOWEL has saved and maintained the building and opened it up to the public, along with some 1,900 or so documents from the Yagi family's archives, as well as works by local painters and calligraphers.
