  • Kawai kanjiro home and work was published as a Memorial. Located in the residential area from the outside looks like a normal House, but it was also climbing kiln remains in the premises, surprised. Kanjiro unique world in which I felt the great space. Especially love carving works.

  • Small House Museum that almost nobody visits. Kawai Kanjiro (1890-1966) was a prominent Japanese Potter and this was his house-laboratory. On display are many of his accomplishments along with its collection of ceramics. Looks like a country house dating back to 1937. Except Monday is open from 10 to 17. Like many other museums in Japan is closed for the holiday season: from 24 December to 7 January. 900 YEN entrance fee. Not to be missed for lovers of Japanese ceramics. Match it to the nearby National Museum of Kyoto.
