Koishiwara Ceramics Museum


Koishiwara-yaki pottery is a type of folk craft pottery, with over 350 years of history, and was designated as the first traditional craft in Japan. It is characterized by unique techniques such as ’tobikanna’ and ’hakeme.’ At the Koishiwara Ceramics, you can see the history of Koishiwara-yaki, and profiles of 44 kilns in the area and enjoy exhibition of both new and classic pottery works. They also have a pottery-making corner which has become popular. In May and October, Spring and Autumn folk pottery festivals are held. Visitors can purchase potteries with discounted prices. (There are also other events around the seasons of rhododendrons and fall leaves, etc.)
