Tourist facility

Rays Farm

The owner, who have been growing vegetables, encountered the indigo called "Tade Ai" and cultivated them herself. She started this experience facility to let people know how wonderful it is.
You can pick fresh indigo leaves from the field in front of you and dye them under the guidance of the owner.
There are three types of workshops: "raw leaf Tapping dyeing," "raw leaf dyeing," and "Shima indigo dyeing.
Dyeing using fresh leaves is only available from July to mid-October, but Shima indigo dyeing using dried leaves is available throughout the year.
The natural indigo is gentle on the body and mind, and the vivid color dyeing process will surely impress you.
Let's have a special experience with sustainable indigo blue from Ise-Shima, carefully raising by the owner.
