Tour a historic factory that helped modernize Japan

Tomioka Silk Mill put Gunma on the map for textiles. Established in 1872, the factory played a pivotal role in Japan's industrial revolution during the Meiji era (1868–1912).

It was a model factory, utilizing the latest machines to set new standards in terms of silk quality and improved working conditions. It was the country's first modern silk mill to process silkworms cocoons into raw silk.

You can tour this well-preserved factory, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
