The Japan Mongolian Folk Museum in Tanto is the largest museum of Mongolian culture in Japan.
Due to its past of producing silk, Tanto has historically welcomed professors and visitors from Mongolia to observe Tanto’s process of creating silk.
Exhibits displayed throughout the museum include a full-scale ger (traditional Mongolian house), Mongolian clothing, artworks, Tibetan Buddhism history exhibits, and a special room archiving the history of Tanto’s history as a silk town.
