Toward the end of the Edo Period, Japan suffered a succession of disastrous harvests, leading to a sharp decline in the demand for luxury fabrics. And when Japan's capital was moved from Kyoto to Tokyo in 1869, Nishijin weaving seemed threatened with extinction.

Observers were sent to Europe to study the textile industry there, and advanced Western weaving technology and equipment were introduced.
