Lonely Planet review

Situated conveniently nearby, the Bijutsukan Kōgeikan , which stages excellent changing exhibitions of mingei crafts: ceramics, lacquerware, bamboo, textiles, dolls and much more. Artists range from living national treasures to contemporary artisans. Its red-brick building is an important cultural property in its own right – it dates from 1910, when it was the headquarters of the imperial guards, and was then rebuilt after its unfortunate destruction in WWII.
