In 1608, Arimatsu succeeded Okehazama Village, of historical interest for the Battle of Okehazama, and became the main production area of shibori tie-dyeing.
Arimatsu’s historical townscape is widely known as one of the most beautiful of the sceneries in the Fifty-three Stages of the Tokaido, and was depicted by many ukiyoe (wood-block print) artists such as Hokusai and Hiroshige.
Arimatsu has maintained its beautiful townscape, and its contribution to the aesthetics of Japanese culture through shibori.
The Arimatsu-Narumi Shiborikaikan was established to conserve and develop the distinctive shibori culture, and introduces shibori extensively through workshops and exhibitions of products/materials of historical and craftwork value.
