Fodor's Review

This museum on the Miyako Messe exhibition hall's basement level is devoted to the finely made crafts for which Kyoto is famous. Bamboo tea utensils, lacquerware, Buddhist imagery, and fine silk textiles, including kimonos, are among the traditional craft objects on display. Artisans are invited to create their works at the museum to help visitors comprehend the remarkable skill required to master a craft, and well-made videos further illustrate the point. At the museum's shop, you can purchase pieces similar to those on display.
