Beni Museum is a facility where you can learn and experience the history of Beni , the traditional color of Japan, as well as the Japanese culture of cosmetics. Beni" is the color of safflower petals, which contains a small amount of red pigment. It has been used since ancient times as a dye, food coloring, paint, and cosmetics.
Beni made by Isehan Honten, the last Beni store founded in 1825, shines in iridescent colors, the proof of its high quality. It is a must-see to see the moving moment when it changes from iridescent color to red after dissolving in water. The Beni Museum is a place where the last of the BENI stores conveys the history and culture of Beni and Japanese cosmetics along with the techniques of Beni making.
