One recommended dyeing studio SOMENOSATO-OCHIAI 染の里おちあい is in Tokyo. (It was called Futaba-en 二葉苑 before 2020.) They sell many kinds of traditional dyeing supplies, and you can get a few hours of hands-on experience there.

If you want to learn more about dyeing techniques, it would be a good idea to take one of their workshops which last for several days.
