Crafts Gallery

Museum in Marunouchi & Nihombashi

Housed in a vintage red-brick building, this annex of MOMAT stages excellent changing exhibitions of mingei (folk crafts): ceramics, lacquerware, bamboo, textiles, dolls and much more. Some exhibits feature works by contemporary artisans, including some by Japan's officially designated 'living national treasures'. The building was once the headquarters of the imperial guards, and was rebuilt after its destruction in WWII.
