This museum and crafts center is dedicated to minsah weaving, a traditional handicraft of Ishigaki and the Yaeyama region that is thought to date back to the 17th or 18th century. Once on the verge of dying out, minsah weaving made a resurgence in the 1970s when a creative shift was made to produce items for modern everyday life, and was recognized as a traditional handicraft in 1989. Today at the Minsah Kogei Museum you can learn about the intricate process and even try making your own minsah cloth. A variety of products are also on display for you to admire or purchase, from purses and handbags to neckties and even cute animals.
