About Osaka Japanese Folk Art Museum
After the fall of the 1970 World’s Fair in Japan, Soyetsu Ryu (1889-1961) proposed a movement to use the building to house the Western Japan headquarters for folk crafts. As a result it was transformed into the Japanese Folk Art Museum and reopened to the public. Together with the National Memorial Hall of Ethnology, the Rose Garden and the Traditional Japanese Garden, the Japanese Folk Art Museum forms the cultural heart of the Expo Memorial Park.
