Long before Harajuku even existed, humans decked themselves in jewelry for various purposes – to boast social status or incredible wealth, demonstrate piety, or attract a potential lover. Renowned for its vast collection of textiles and fabrics from all over the world, the Bunka Gakuen Costume Museum thrives with artsy students from the affiliated university and aspiring trendsetters. This summer, the museum will host “Beads of the World,” an event in which beadwork and ornaments from all over the world will sit side by side in a glittering display. You can see everything from elegantly beaded gowns from Europe to symbolic beads often found in temples and shrines.
Note that the museum is closed on Sundays and national holidays. It will be open on August 3 and August 24, but closed between August 10 and August 17.
*Also note that nominal extra fees may be charged in addition to the normal museum entry fees (500 yen for adults).
