  • The Museum is located in a beautiful building. He exhibited almost exclusively pottery. Without exception, all the object date after the 2nd World War.

  • Located in a lovely old building, formerly storage place of rice, the museum gives a good overview of folk art. There are many different examples of: pottery, ceramics, lacquerware, baskets, glass art, all kinds of objects. You need your shoes and the museum on slippers (are ready). In case of rain is that what contradictory because at the end of the route you need outside from one building to the entrance walk back (keep the slippers than not clean). You may not photograph, even without Flash. The museum is located within walking distance of the train station, in the historic part of Kurashiki.

  • Several pieces to theme (pottery, glass, wicker..) but almost no explanation on manufacturing. Not necessarily worth 700 yen.

Where to stay in Kurashiki

Look to the canal district of Kurashiki for the most characterful accommodations in the old merchant town. Along the willow-lined banks of the main canal, you'll find a selection of hotels and traditional-style guesthouses known as ryokan, some converted from old warehouse buildings. Newly built establishments try their best to get close to the action of this scenic and historic district, so take a look on either side of the canal for a collection of fairly standard hotels and a few hostels.
