In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
The Edo Taito Traditional Crafts Center can be found in the historic neighborhood of Asakusa. Exhibitions on the first and second floors show the incredible range of its collection. There are around 250 objects, covering 48 styles of traditional craftwork. The center reopened in March 2019 following renovations. Through a series of displays and touch-panel screens, visitors can now read information about the exhibits in Japanese, English, Chinese (simplified and traditional), and Korean.
On weekends, you can head to the second floor to watch the city's best artisans demonstrate their incredible techniques.
