OUR STORY 1
Wakuden’s history begins in Kyo-tango, in northern Kyoto prefecture. Here peaceful villages dot the mountainside overlooking the Sea of Japan. This area was described in The Nihon Shoki* (The Chronicles of Japan), and was revered for its production of artisan silk crepe, known as Tango Chirimen.
