KYOTO KOUGEI WEEK 2019

BY CRAFTS

KOUGEI EXHIBITION JOURNEY

2019.09.07 [SAT] - 09.08 [SUN]
Kyo-yado USAGI

This is an arts and crafts exhibition showcasing leading craftspeople and artists of today’s cultural and traditional craftsmanship in Kyoto. The venue will be the four suites of Kyo-yado USAGI, a kyo-machiya turned into a modern lodging facility where guests can feel like they live in Kyoto. Four groups that normally work independently will come together in one venue for two special days.

 

Enjoy your travels with all five senses—the crafts on display can be seen, touched and used. This will be a “journey” full of new encounters with people, things and occasions, with one-of-a-kind services and exhibits.

Some products and services will be available only during the exhibition in each room, and there will also be collaborative merchandise.
