What people are saying:

The Museum of Customs was established by Mr. Izutsu Yuhei, the eighth-generation owner of a long-established Kyoto shop [Izutsu French Clothing Store] that has existed since 1705. Mr. Izutsu Yuhei was very interested in the history of customs (folk culture). From 1950 Since then, he has served as a consultant for costume history in different institutions and important festivals. In order to let everyone know the Tale of Genji and the Heian period more, in 1974, Mr. Izutsu Yuhei established the Museum of Customs on the fifth floor of Izutsu's French clothing store.

    Closed all of July for new exhibit

    Would really like to have visited this. Unfortunately it is closed for July 2017. The sign advising this was off to the side, not immediately obvious.
