Why locals love it

Japanese cultured pearls are known for its quality and beauty. We can learn its history and basics here in Kobe Pearl Museum. But why in Kobe? Most pearl farmers are in western Japan. It was natural those cultured pearls were gathered in Kobe, the biggest hub port in West Japan, and processed and auctioned before dispatched to other countries.

Why you should visit it

Cultured pearls are art pieces made together by nature and human being. Pearl cultivation was invented in the early 20th century. After learning how those are made, you’ll realize how eco conscious and sustainable pearls are. There’s a small shop you can buy pearl accessories if you’d like to.

Special tip

Ask Museum staff for English/ French/ Korean assistant.
