The Japan Folk Crafts Museum

The current director of the museum is Naoto Fukasawa, a leading designer who is highly-acclaimed with his works such as product designs for MUJI, a part of them is a permanent collection at MoMA New York, and Bloomberg Businessweek described Naoto Fukasawa as "one of the world's most influential designers."



And here's question. Why such a world famous designer is keen on a small museum located in a suburb of Tokyo?



You will know the reason as you enter the museum, which focuses on Japanese handicrafts, mostly produced for daily use. They look quite simple, but have "the beauty of everyday objects," which Soetsu Yanagi, the founder of the museum, used to celebrate in his "Mingei" movement.
