The diverse appeal of traditional crafts presented over 4 venues.
- Exhibition, trial and sale of traditional craftsIn additional to 40 items designated by the Tokyo Metropolis, Hall B7 includes a market with handicrafts from across the nation on display and for sale. Hall B5 includes a demonstration area for traditional craftsmen, and a workshop allowing attendees to make their own handicrafts. This is a wonderful chance to see artisan techniques up-close for yourself.
- Traditional crafts and lifestyles of late EdoA life of traditional crafts based on the late Edo period is on display in the west passage of the first floor Galleria. “Cloth,” “Food,” “Life,” “Fun”... Antiquated and contemporary representations of these four aspects of every day life are put side by side. This exhibition comes loaded examples of how to incorporate traditional crafts into a modern lifestyle, and is not to be missed.
- Experience traditional craft techniquesThe impressive vaulted space of KITTE’s first floor atrium becomes home to artisan techniques over three zones: “Experience”, “Future”, and “Science”. Prefectural PR areas will be established in the underground of Tokyo City Ai along with an information counter for the convention.
- Exhibition of traditional craft masterpieces from across JapanMust-see masterpieces from artisans from across the nation are on display in the first floor Maru Cube. The Edo Tokyo Kirari Project will be held at the same time, refining well-established products to establish them as a Tokyo brand.
