Everything was well labelled, so the particular type or style of pottery is stated, and works by famous masters are also featured. Additionally, Kaga Yuzen stencilled fabrics, kasuri and basket weaving exhibits also fill the museum.

there is few museums in kurashiki-bikan district but if you got some spare time, you should visit, but if you don't have much time there, skip it.

This museum showcases local made pottery and furniture with some other pieces thrown into the mix. These are everyday objects, but still stylish and attractive. Everyday exhibits of art. Good way to spend an hour or so for a small price.
