Travel Guide - Matsumoto Folkcraft Museum


Matsumoto Folkcraft Museum was established in 1962 by a Matsumoto's craft researcher Muneyoshi Yanagi to exhibit his collection of folkcrafts. Then, the museum became the Matsumoto City's facility in 1983.
The museum exhibits a wide variety of folkcrafts, such as furniture, ceramics, fabrics, and glassware. The museum's traditional earthen-wall building fashioned in the classic "Namako-kabe", or the black and white geometric design wall, as well as its Japanese garden are also worth seeing.
