#1 of 210 Museums in Kyoto
The museum makes arrangements for you at a specialty Kimono shop just down the street where a team of lovely and welcoming local ladies attend to an authentic Kimono dressing including hair styling.
Small museum but the tour guide is very knowledgeable and it's a fantastic visit for a great price.

I am realla into traditional crafts and textiles which is why I basically searched Kyoto for museums and centers to see where the traditions derived from, their history and how they changed over time.
The shrine and gardens are beautiful, the Traditional Crafts Museum is free and very interesting, and the Modern Art Museum is very good and often has superb special exhibits.

I felt honored to take a Shibori fabric dyeing class at the Shibori Museum in Kyoto Japan.Ryo was so informative and an excellent teacher, his English is perfect.
The class takes less than an hour, and after your scarf is dyed, while it's drying, you can explore many fine examples of various shibori techniques in the museum upstairs.

It's a tiny place when compared to most museums, but it has about 50 kaleidoscopes, which are all on display to be lifted and used.
This museum is a charming oasis of calm and beauty, and a lovely way to relax in the midst of a hectic holiday.

Easily spend a day in this area as there are different museums and the theatre as well as a major shrine,and spent over 2 hours between the Van Gogh in Japan exhibition and the galleries collection.
Unlike the National Museum, which featured a blockbuster exhibition this month that drew buses full of viewers, the MOMAK felt quieter.

Netsuke lovers, such as ourselves, will be in seventh heaven with these gorgeous pieces, however, the museum will also appeal more broadly to art and sculpture lovers or those appreciating traditional Japanese cul...
Located inside one of the few remaining samurai villas in Kyoto, the netsuke museum is an exquisite museum devoted to Japan's delightful miniature worn sculptures called netsuke.
