Description

The Taito ward is well-known throughout Japan for being an area of traditional handicrafts. Even though people's lifestyles and values have changed since Edo became Tokyo, the Edo culture and spirit in downtown Tokyo still remains. Artisans have succeeded the spirit of the area cultivated by their predecessors, protecting their art and continuing to create traditional crafts.

At the Edo Taito Traditional Crafts Center, we have about 50 types and 250 items of traditional crafts on display, detailed explanations of the crafts through video footage, and in-house artisans present on weekends. In addition, we hope to convey the charm of these traditional crafts and allow people to be able to chat with the artisans by holding events such as practical workshops.

The traditional crafts and artisans, cultivated over time by history and culture, are the treasures of the Taito ward. We hope that you can experience this firsthand through our museum.
