The Izumo Museum of Quilt Art


Quilt museum showcasing Izumo culture, surrounded by traditional Japanese houses


Situated in the middle of Izumo Plain filled with rich nature, the Izumo Museum of Quilt Art opened its door as the first quilt museum in Japan. The museum is set in a 200-year-old Japanese traditional house constructed of Izumo style. Quilt works produced by Mutsuko Yawatagaki who is a leading expert on Japanese style quilting are displayed alongside ‘ikebana’ (flower arrangements), seasonal room decorations and the four seasonal themed exhibitions per year. Passing down the culture of Izumo and the Japanese spirit to the next generation is the main concept of this museum through its space, atmosphere and aesthetic beauty of the setting of the museum.
