Edo Shitamachi Traditional Craft Museum

I have already introduced you photos of Ueno and Asakusa district in this blog.
Those districts are included in Taito-ku (Taito-ward).
Taito-ward is a typical old down town of Tokyo.
It prospered by commerce and excellent craftwork industry in Edo era.

And many craftsmen still inherit technologies of traditional craftwork.

Edo Shitamachi Traditinal Museum was established by Taito- ward to support traditinal technology, and to introduce those fine works.
This small museum stands on Hisago-dori(street) in Asakusa.

These photos were taken on May 19 , 2010.

How interesting it must be to visit such a place! it shows how different our cultures are: I see knifes, furniture, kitchen tools, but they have really different shapes from the ones I know. I like very much the 3 last pictures,very colorful, and the dolls are very beautyful.
A great post! one of the longest you made! :)
