Tottori Folk Crafts Museum (鳥取民藝美術館)

4.0

Art Museum

The Tottori Folk Crafts Museum was established with the aim of showcasing the way folk crafts have been able to make everyday objects both practical and beautiful; the Museum has around 6,000 folk craft artifacts on display, both from Japan and overseas. The Museum is housed in a visually-striking building that was designed with great attention to detail by Yoshida Shoya; with its plaster-on-clay external walls, it resembles a traditional Japanese storehouse.

鳥取駅からもほど近く、理知も便利です。建物自体が蔵のような雰囲気のレトロな建物で、重要建造物にもなっています。1、2階に展示されていますがあまり大きくないのですぐに見終わります。地域のものだけではなく世界の民芸展示がされています。
