Kyoto is a birth place of traditional arts, crafts and performances of Japan,
and has been maintaining its tradition with the coming of the new age.

Netsuke are special accessories for pilcases or tobacco pouches which are hung from the obi sashs of kimono. This exhibition features the netsuke with the theme of ukiyoe. Several netsuke artists created their special works using the motif of the unique characters printed on ukiyoe.
You can enjoy the elaborate skill and beauty of netsuke in a traditional Japanese setting which used to be a gorgeous samurai estate.
