Printing Museum, Tokyo Why we are here

Printing Museum
What do we do?

1 The museum puts the craft of printing under the spotlight. Many of its activities focus on the printing of Japan and the rest of Asia.
2 The museum leads visitors on a voyage of discovery in the world of printing through a process of feeling, understanding, discovering, and creating.
3 Until now, printing research has focused largely on the technical elements of the craft. The museum presents the technical aspects of printing ingreat detail, but takes more than just a nuts-and-bolts approach.Visitors will become conversant with a very young field of inquiry: the study of prinitng culture.
