工場の祭典2017 key visual

Running from October 5-8, the Tsubame-Sanjo Factory Festival will see the factories
in the Tsubame-Sanjo area - renowned for producing quality products - invite visitors
inside to experience the spirit of product making.
Whilst visitors are usually not allowed during operating hours, the festival will offer
an opportunity to get a close up view of product making. Across four days,
the often-reticent artisans will welcome visitors and passionately introduce
their products and practices. In addition to watching the artisans work,
visitors will also be able to participate in product making through various workshops.
Please come to meet the artisans of Tsubame-Sanjo,
who put all their passions into their product making
