  • Ishikawa Kaga Yuzen dyeing, Kutani ceramics craft equipped with it. Detailed explanations understandable and understood how to make. And you can convince things go together and like a Museum of traditional arts and crafts 6 garden next to the. Special exhibitions are also substantial, was that during the time is gone. But the fun here is 21st century museum exhibits in situ was looking even closer at the Museum near the House. In, soon tsujiguchi's sweet shop. There also are recommended.

  • High quality arts and crafts masterpieces, beautiful and rare. The setting and lighting is alright but pretty common for Japan museum. I sincelery regret the lack of English written translations.
  • Very aesthetically set up museum. Small collections in large airy light spaces. Wonderful cafe worth a bit of a long wait to get in
  • Wonderful cafe, beautiful architecture that shows the greenery around it; uncluttered exhibition halls that show the focal pieces very well
  • A multi century tour of local artists working in a variety of different styles (ranging from crafts to sculpture to Western oil painting). Relaxing, spacious facility with lots of rest areas and very few tourists make it a good casual afternoon.
  • Not bad, but a bit depressing since no one is there
