Folding Screen Museum


"Traditional Japanese Furniture Piece"

Particularly well suited to a 'floor culture', the folding screen is the quintessential Japanese furniture piece. This small specialty museum exhibits the many different tools required to carry out the screen production process. Commonly the folding screen has two or six hinged panels, the number 'four' being considered an unlucky. Historically screens were used in temples, castles and houses for both decorative and practical purposes - for example for warmth and privacy. If you a considering purchase of Japanese screens, this is a good place to learn what to look for. Admission: Free
