Fureai-kan  | Learn & Experience Traditional Japanese Works of Art

The Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts, or Fureaikan, is a museum dedicated to preserving Kyoto's traditional and cultural works of art. The museum features approximately 500 artifacts on traditional ceramics, kimono, and other works of arts. Visitors can learn about each of the traditional crafts in the display area, or visit the museum's library. The library is filled with information on the specific artworks and techniques featured in the museum. The museum also has a room where guests can experience surigata-yuzen (Yuzen dyeing hands-on experience), a special Kyoto stencil dyeing technique. Visitors who participate in the Yuzen dyeing workshops can take their work of art home with them as the ultimate souvenir (the museum offers either a bag or handkerchief). There are also other craft demonstrations, including Kyo-zogan (Inlays), Mon (family crest) painting, Kyo-butsugu (Buddhist altars), Warosoku (Japanese candle), Kyo-sashimono (Wood crafts), Kyo-shikki (Lacquer-ware), and Kyo-kumihimo (Braided cord). There are even Maiko and Geiko performances (Kyoto Dialect for Geisha) held at the museum.
