As the first national art museum along the Sea of Japan, the National Crafts Museum (The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo) opened in Kanazawa on October 25, 2020!
About 1,900 works of art and craft works such as ceramics, lacquerwares, textiles and metalwork moved from Tokyo to be relocated in Ishikawa Prefecture. Visitors can admire remarkable craft works created by Living National Treasure (individuals certified as Preservers of Important Intangible Cultural Properties).
