Costume Museum Reviews
Great small museum highlighting costumes through the ages, intricate detail with everything from Handmaidens to Football. Little hard to find across from Saikyo-ji Temple - Upstairs look for the sign ... more »
他の方も書いていらっしゃるようにビルの5階で出入り口にも案内がなくてわかりづらいです。 平安時代の蹴鞠の様子や馬弓の様子を人形で再現していました。 季節によって色を変えて装う重ね着についての解説も興味深かったです。 また、猫は当時大切にされ宮中で飼われている場合はベビーシッターのような猫専用のお世話係がついたそうです。 当時のお菓子の椿餅についての解決などおもしろかったです。 more »It is hard to understand it without guidance in the doorway in the fifth floor of the building as other people also write. I was reproducing the state of the kick and bow of the Heian period with a doll. The explanation about the layered clothes which changed the color according to the season was also interesting. Moreover, it seems to have attached the care keeper only for the cat like the babysitter when the cat was valued at that time and it was kept in the court. It was interesting to solve camelrice cakes at that time.
The museum is currently CLOSED! It's on break until February 03rd 2019 because of a change in exhibition. Please be mindful of this when visiting and don't stand front of a closed door like me. The rating can be ignored as I didn't actually see the museum...
It’s a small “museum” or rather an large exhibition room with amazing miniature display of models of Heian palace based on The Tale of Genji. Highly recommended! It’s located a crossed the street from a great temple, where transportation is very convenient. Check it out—but notice it’s hidden in a building so you may need to used google map or other kinds of guide and then look around a bit. I had a lot of fun there! Great photo reference for artists too.
