Story & Recommendation
Learn, buy, enjoy at Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts, Fureaikan! The traditional handicrafts of Kyoto
Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts, Fureaikan is located on the basement floor of Miyako Messe, one of the largest convention centers in Kyoto. Inside this museum, they showcase 74 types of handicrafts with around 500 artifacts on display. This is the only museum showcasing this amount of handicrafts in the whole of Japan. And the specialty of this museum is that you don’t only have to be satisfied with only looking at the works. You can read about the crafts from the text panels by them, and, if you so wish to do, you can even buy them. In addition to this, you even get to see how the artisans make their crafts up close. So there are many ways in which you can enjoy this museum. I recommend this museum to those interested in handicrafts. If you’re not that into handicrafts, note that entrance to this museum is free, and it’s an easy destination to combine with Heian Shrine and Kyoto Zoo.
