Map Panorama Collection Movie Collection
The former Bank of Japan Matsue Branch building was restored and then reopened with a handicraft theme as the Kara-Koro Workshop, a craft center containing both production and sales facilities. Visitors can observe artisans working with glass, agate, ceramics, silver, old fabrics, and wood in the workshop, and try their hands at various crafts in the handicraft classroom. A variety of food and drink facilities are also available onsite, including a fresh bakery, gelato stand, Izumo Soba (buckwheat noodles) shop, and French restaurant. Below ground, the former Bank of Japan's vault has been converted into a gallery.
