Silk M outlokI visited the Silk Museum in Yokohama last week. This visit was actually motivated by observing the memorial exhibits of Tomioka Silk Mill (now a World Industrial Heritage site. Refer to my blog:  ) in Gunma last year. And this time I expected that the Silk Museum might provide the information regarding how silk industry had grown as a major export product of Japan in history. Because the Museum was established in 1967 to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of opening Port City Yokohama, and I knew that Yokohama had bristled with this silk export business in the early time of Meiji period. The visiting was quite satisfactory one in this finding. The report is a small note of impression of visit with some additional data on silk industry.
