Scandinavian countries are often highly revered for their design style, and Finnish design in particular has some unique qualities — simple clean lines, wooden elements, and inspiration drawn from nature are just a few. From October 10th until November 15th the Tottori Prefectural Museum is hosting a special exhibit titled "Finnish Design for Everyday Life", where guests can explore a variety of pieces from this region of the world. There will be a specific focus on Finnish glass crafts and textiles, with over 250 items in total on display. Adult admission to the exhibition is 1000 yen, with university students and younger admitted for free.

Getting there

The Tottori Prefectural Museum is located around 10 minutes by taxi from Tottori Station, served by the Sanin Main Line.

Alternatively, take the 100 yen Kururi Bus (green line) from Tottori Station. Departures take place approximately every 20 minutes, and there is a dedicated stop for the museum (stop number 11).

I'm an Australian who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan - specifically Tokyo and Niigata. I've  visited 44 of 47 prefectures, with only Kagoshima, Miyazaki and Kumamoto left to check out. I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.

Climate in Scandinavia is very different from Japan, I bet! I'd like to stay in Japan if I could, but there is no way. :)
