"KYOTO NATIONAL MUSEUM" Kyoto National Museum Tip by heywinks
Kyoto National Museum, Kyoto: 15 reviews and 62 photos
I came here to see an exhibit on the history & aesthetics of tea in Japan. It was a very interesting exhibit: tea bowls, teapots, spoons, water heaters, folding screens & scrolls depicting village tea scenes, etc. The layout was good (some English translation too!) & easy to follow.
The permanant exhibit displays textiles, Japanese old roof tiles, bells, buddha/deity figures, scrolls, swords, & pottery.
It`s a little expensive to see the exhibits so I suggest you check out their website. If the new special exhibit sounds interesting to you, then go. I wouldn`t go just to see the permanant exhibit.
NOTE: 2nd or 4th Saturday of the month it`s free admission to the permanant collection.
Address: 527 Chayamachi, Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto, 605-0931
