Kyoto Museum of Crafts and Design

Kyoto Museum of Crafts and Design

Meet the new world of crafts in Kyoto, the Thousand-Year Capital. Many unique aspects of Japanese culture, including tea ceremony, flower arrangement, Noh and Kyogen theatres, have originated and flourished in Kyoto through its 1,000-year long history. Many traditional industries were developed with materials and techniques that local artisans have continued to use from generation to generation. The high level of Kyoto craftsmanship and expertise played an important role spreading across the country and giving shape to Japanese culture.
