In the school are the landscape paintings of Tokinori Nagasawa (1865 - 1920), a damask
silk tapestry woven by students at the turn of the century to promote Kiryu textiles, and
a portrait of principal Hirotaro Nishida by Yoichi Makishim.
Mr. Nagasawa went to Kiyonne to study western painting. After returning to Japan, he
worked at the Japan Textile Company. Later he became a professor at Kiryuu Textile School,
playing an important role in the textile design world of the Taisho and Meiji periods.
