30 国立工芸館(東京国立近代美術館工芸館) National Crafts Museum(Crafts Gallery, The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo)

The Crafts Gallery, The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo was opened in 1977 in Kitanomaru Park, the north side of the Imperial Palace, as a museum specializing in modern crafts and design mainly from Japan. In 2020, it moved to Kanazawa City in Ishikawa Prefecture as the first national museum situated on the coast of the Japan Sea—to be known as the National Crafts Museum—starting afresh as a craft-culture communication hub. For the move of the Gallery, Ishikawa Prefecture and Kanazawa City have relocated and restored the Old 9th Division Command Headquarters and the Old Army Generals Club,both originally built during Meiji period (1868-1912) and designated as a Registered Tangible Cultural Property in 1997.
