Designated as “Japan Heritage” thanks to its tabi warehouses where craftsmen create tabi – traditional socks with separations between the toes – which is a beautiful ornament for feet in the art of kimono, the city of Gyôda in Saitama prefecture is proud to be the number 1 exporter of tabi.
When buying tabi on the booth, you will be explained the creation processes and will get to know this Japanese traditional industry.
Pamphlets will be distributed, promoting the historic heritage like Oshi Castle and Sakitama Kofungun gravestones to spread the beauty of the city of Gyôda where History and Ancient Rome live together.
Visit the booth of the city of Gyôda (M192, hall 5A) in the Tourism Area at Japan Expo!
