Tottori Craft

Japan's least populous prefecture with one of the richest craft traditions

Tottori Prefecture

Tottori is the least populous prefecture in Japan. Abundant in natural resources, but difficult to access due to its mountainous terrain and harsh winters, this prefecture gave rise to a unique culture of craft. Tottori Prefecture also benefits from the legacy of Japan's folk art movement, Mingei, and one of its most influential figures - Shoya Yoshida, who was born there and helped lead an impressive craftsmanship revival which resonates to this day.
