Pictures from Japan
We visited the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology in Nagoya. Toyota started out making spinning and weaving machinery before they made cars. I have lots more photos of the spinning and weaving. This photo shows one of the more modern looms.
Some early woven cloth for yukata (a cotton robe as opposed to the silk kimono)
The Itsukushima Shrine in Miyajima (near Hiroshima)
