We are so glad that can have a tour with friends from Miyagi and Iwate.
At the first day, we went to Ms. Miku’s farm, learning the knowledge of indigo, having onigiri for lunch, then we went to harvest indigo leaves. We cut off mature leaves, leave the babies, and let them keep growing up to be the good leaves for dyeing.
Then it’s the highlight of this tour, put leaves into blender, added some magic powder, and started dyeing.
Sink the towel what we had designed into indigo juice, and then oxidize it for at least 15 minutes, repeated for 5~6 times.
Look at everyone’s towel lined up at clothes pole, floating with the wind. How wonderful it is.
We want everyone come to Minamisanriku, enjoying a cozy day, and know more about this charming town.
