  • This is a great place to learn about traditional crafts practiced in Kyoto. Exhibition text is in both English and Japanese, and there are craftspeople doing demonstrations (a real highlight! On the day we were there we saw cord being woven, bronze mirrors being polished, candles painted, and wood carved). I loved being able to see the processes used to make some of the crafts I recognised from my sightseeing in Kyoto.
  • This is a great place to see and learn - well worth a visit.
  • Splendid Museum and shop about the rich craftsmanship of Kyoto. Everything is translated into English. Free access.

  • We were in the part bf1, with exhibition of kimonos and other traditional works. See dates because we were able to attend a demonstration of maiko dance and a brief explanation of the clothes that use, all without any cost.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
