  • Japan folk crafts Museum in the central figure of the White Birch sect, founded the religious philosopher soetsu Yanagi is head of "mingei" movement so to speak. And "people of the arts" in the Taisho era luxury until it gorgeous barrel one disputed what had been created by renowned artist "beauty" and is "finding beauty in what can be used in our daily lives, making handicraft artisans in innocence" and "beauty paradigm shift". I think better today handed down its spirit "MUJI", became the prototype of the cool things to say. And I wrote it remind you of, but seeing is believing is better than look. Including the building carefully cloth and with looking at want. According to the West (formerly Yanagi muneyoshi House) have time fragrance of plastered will be released we want to go.

  • The visit in February after a long time. Wednesday was also open, Yanagi muneyoshi's mansion. That is why a little crowded. But writers still work divided into rooms there. I like Bernard Leach. Childhood visit to Japan and had recently learned. Yanagi muneyoshi's across the street from houses and quaint, cabinet door furniture and wonderful.

  • Great museum in the former house of a collector/designer/publisher specialised in Folk Crafts. Gorgious potteries, kimonos, sashikos and all kind of beautiful "wabi-sabi" products. A bit out of city c...  more »

  • This museum is easily accessible from Shibuya, it's 20 minutes on the metro. While the museum is small and may not seem very grand, it actually provides you with a window into the artisans of Japan's past. The focus on common, not high art, is very refreshing. There are some beautiful pieces in the museum that validate your excursion to get here.
  • Nice building but an utterly dull display. Very expensive also at 1100 yen per adult. Not recommended.
  • Good exhibitions in a nice old building. Check before you go as on few days a second building is available to visit.
  • Explains the origin of craft revival movement in Japan.
  • authentic old house houses "rustic" art. ceramics, basketry and masks
