  • It was not easy to find, but it was worth wile searching for! Nicely done and lovely presented the different ways in a miniature puppet way and some original sizes Kimono styles.  more »
  • Bill here and hesitate a moment at the entrance of the building. And opened the door and went inside and costume Museum signage, while relieved goes up on the fifth floor with elevator (lift). There's a world of tale of Genji picture scroll. The instruments have been used in Shinto shrine? The current anthem was played in the background music is. The life-size dolls and miniature dolls. They reckoned the diorama making, taketori-Monogatari as dolls, have been reproduced. West honganji Temple and also visit the best walk, incidentally, Kyoto Railway Museum located approximately 20 minutes.

  • It’s a small “museum” or rather an large exhibition room with amazing miniature display of models of Heian palace based on The Tale of Genji. Highly recommended! It’s located a crossed the street from a great temple, where transportation is very convenient. Check it out—but notice it’s hidden in a building so you may need to used google map or other kinds of guide and then look around a bit. I had a lot of fun there! Great photo reference for artists too.
  • Super femenine! Amazing presentation. Includes English texts.
  • The Genji Costume Museum is just one room, and other than some clothing and musical instruments it features a meticulously constructed replica of a house described in The Tale of Genji. Unless you are a fan of the novel or want to see Heian-era living in three dimensions, it may not be of interest. Some years ago the museum allowed visitors to dress up in Heian-era clothes, but not anymore it seems. Photography is allowed and admission is 500 yen.
  • Closed all of July 2017 for new display
  • high quality!
