The museum here has curated a tasteful collection.
Of particular note are the brilliantly preserved Edo period collection of high quality craftsmanship combined with tasteful brilliant artistic integrity. No lazy quick fixes here, these artists really honed their skills and the approx. 500 year old...More
Happened upon this hidden gem while getting rain-battered walking through Kenroki-en during Typhoon LAN yesterday. This very well-done museum provided an hour of delightful viewing of some of the most exquisite hand crafts I’ve ever seen. Lovely English descriptions allowed me to fully enjoy the...More
