The Kyoto International Exhibition Hall - or "Miyako Messe," as it is more commonly known - is a large exhibition hall in the museum area of Okazaki.
It is directly across the street from , and around the corner from Heian Jingu and its massive torii gate.
It has arts & crafts shows, and larger business-oriented events.
The large building is home to the offices of the Japan Designers Association and the Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts (Kyoto Fureaikan). In addition, there are large halls set up for trade shows and conventions.
Recently, we visited an amateur arts and crafts festival on the first floor. It was quite a mix of paintings and clothing and antiques.
If you arrive on a bike, there is parking at the front of the building.
Listen to an announcement outside the entrance of the facility for the blind.
