Onomichi Kakien

The Onomichi Persimmon Studio is located in the Onomichi Persimmon Garden, about a 7-minute drive from the Onomichi Kita Interchange on the expressway. The Sugano area in Onomichi City’s Michou-cho, where the Onomichi Persimmon Garden is located, has been one of the most prosperous persimmon production areas in Japan since the early 17th century, and is famous as a “persimmon village” with persimmon trees growing everywhere. At the Onomichi Persimmon Dyeing Studio, you can try your hand at dyeing with persimmon tannin and making a stone oven pizza with dried persimmon fruit.

At the Onomichi Persimmon Shibu Studio, visitors can try their hand at dyeing using persimmon tannin, a natural dye extracted from persimmons, or make pizza in a stone oven using dried persimmon fruit. It is said that persimmon tannin has antibacterial and insecticidal effects, and the more you use cloth and leather dyed with persimmon tannin, the darker the color becomes. You can also enjoy the experience of making pizza in a stone oven using additive-free dried fruits made from high-quality persimmons produced in Onomichi City’s Goshou Town. The dried fruits can also be purchased as souvenirs.
