Impeccably displayed collection of ceramics, gold leaf, lacquer ware, paper, embroidery, wood and steel. The ware includes pottery, lantern, masks, decorative umbrellas, toys, musical instruments for the lovers of fine arts. Worth the 206 yen entrance fee. Enjoy.

A small well laid out selection of Japanese crafts, unfortunately there are no English labels but most of the objects speak for themselves.

Nice small museum that has some beautifully crafted examples of work from the area. English signage is very limited. Pretty good selection offered in the shop.

You can access this museum from Kenroku Gardens. It is quite small and the English signage isn't that extensive but the museum does have some beautiful pieces that are worth a look. The shop is also pretty good too.
