that has an interesting story. KYOTO-DESIGN.JP

The results of a nifty piece of historical sleuthing are on display in Kyoto through July 18 in an exhibition timed to coincide with the city's renowned Gion Festival.
Visitors to that famed festival in years past will remember that each of the majestic, multistoried yama floats in the monthlong festival's climactic parade (held each year on July 17) is adorned with an intricate tapestry.

Thus the exhibition will reveal how the Minami Kannon Yama tapestry was likely to have been a gift made to Japan by representatives of the Dutch East India Co., probably in the 18th century. Its Japanese-style decoration was probably made with its ultimate owners in mind.
"Tapi Collection in Kyoto Gion Matsuri" will be held at Kyoto Seikatsu Kogeikan-Memeisha in Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto, through July 18 (10 a.m.-6 p.m.). For more information, call (075) 221-1317.
