Machikado (Street Corner) Museums in Mie

 A machikado museum, or a street corner museum, is based on a new concept in which visitors can get a close-up look at traditional artisanship, handcrafts, and collections at working studios or homes of artisans with a guide from the museum. Mie Prefecture boasts many active machikado museums among other regions in Japan.
 This exhibition will provide an opportunity for the public to learn more about machikado museums and visit the many located all over Mie Prefecture.
 Under the theme of artisanship, special items are selected for the exhibition from the Inabe Machikado Museum, Suzuka and Kameyama Machikado Museum, Mie no Mannaka and Machikado Museum, and Higashi Kishu Machikado Museum (Kinan). In addition, panels introduce machikado museums of 12 areas in Mie Prefecture to show their unique features. So please come to the exhibition and fully enjoy the attractions of the various machikado museums.
 Furthermore, machikado museums present workshops on Saturdays and Sundays during the period to introduce their unique activities. We welcome you to participate in a workshop to experience the activities and find the appeal.
