Close to ART: The Japan Folk Crafts Museum *RERUN
The Japan Folk Crafts Museum in central Tokyo, established over 80 years ago, collects tableware and clothing used in everyday life. Made by nameless craftsmen, the objects on display in its galleries suggest a hidden beauty within the practical. The entire building was designed carefully so as to convey the warmth and comfort of traditional Japanese life. The folk crafts on display there represent the diverse lifestyles in many different areas of Japan.
