Japanese Oni Exchange Museum日本の鬼の交流博物館

Museum / Science Museum

"A museum where you can learn about oni, mythical Japanese creatures similar to ogres and demons. The museum was built on the site of a copper mine in April 1993 as part of an urban revitalization project. The one story museum's exterior is designed to evoke the power of oni. Inside, the museum presents three oni legends connected to Mt. Oe and also has exhibits on traditional performing arts relating to oni as well as oni masks from around the country. The museum's collection of oni dolls and oni folding screen paintings reveal the various facets of Japanese oni, providing visitors with the opportunity to consider just what an ""oni"" is. The museum also has a library and video corner and offers coloring activities and picture story shows for children."

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
