Yamagata Kogei in Okitama 2023

The Yamagata Crafts Association will host the Yamagata Kogei in Okitama 2023 exhibit from 15th to 16th September here!

These works have been imbued with a combination of the elements of Yamagata and the experiences of the crafters’ forefathers before them. Borrowing from the abundance of motifs and materials available in Yamagata’s magnificent landscape, these craftspeople mastered the techniques passed down by their forefathers and added their own innovative twist to the traditions they learnt. Their members aspire to create new, never-before-seen works in their creative practices.

Exhibition Dates: 15th September (Friday) ~ 16th September 2023 (Saturday)

Time: 9:00 am ~ 5:00 pm

Entry Fee: Free

Venue: JR Yonezawa Station 2F, Coworking Space
