Kogeikan (Crafts Gallery at the National Museum of Modern Art) Review

A Gothic Revival redbrick structure from 1910 is worth seeking out. The exhibits of modern and traditional Japanese crafts inside are all too few, but many master artists are represented here in the traditions of lacquerware, textiles, pottery, bamboo, and metalwork.
