■Background of the opening of “Naorai” - A folklore museum where you can rediscover the hidden charm of Japan -

The traditional craft industry, which the Japanese have cultivated and inherited for a long time, has been shrinking in recent years due to the aging of traditional craftsmen, a lack of successors, and a decline in production value.
If this situation continues in the future, the unique culture and technology that the Japanese have built may end up on the decline.
We, Pororokka Co., Ltd., dare to shine a light on Japan's unique culture and techniques that have been lost to the flow of time or are on the verge of being left behind. We have opened Naorai, a folklore museum in KITTE Marunouchi, to pass on the thoughts of the people who carry this tradition, both now and in the future.

■Overview and features of the folklore museum “Naorai”

Based on the concept of ``Connecting the Japanese flavor and connecting it to the present,'' you can learn, experience, and acquire traditional Japanese culture and techniques.

We handle traditional crafts, household goods, clothing, etc.
In addition, we will regularly hold workshops in the shop where you can experience traditional culture by craftsmen.
