We introduce crafts from the Muromachi to the Edo period, focusing on work of the Momoyama period. From retainers overthrowing their lords to unification of the country, this era saw values change significantly as it headed for a mature Edo culture. We follow the transition of aesthetic sensibilities through crafts. Please enjoy them along with Special Exhibition Art Treasures of the Toyotomi family.
