Tobacco and Salt Museum's Miniature Collection 館蔵ミニチュア展 ~小さなものの大きな魅力~

TOBACCO & SALT MUSEUM, 1-16-3 Yokokawa, Sumida City, Tokyo

Miniature pieces of incredible craftsmanship

The Tobacco and Salt Museum has in its collection around 1,500 miniature pieces made between the Meiji period and the Second World War, including miniature craft works by Kobayashi Rekisai, who was active from the late Taisho to early Showa periods. Though only a few centimeters in size, these exquisitely-made miniatures were crafted with select materials, and function just like the real thing. These pieces, which were used to demonstrate the skill of the craftsmen behind them, are being displayed for the first time since the museum’s relocation.
