  • It was located in a quiet residential area like a good product. While small and divided into 3 floors you can see the calm. I also want to go, you can see the various works by time. Shiaomai into just living room and look for books and magazines, such as sitting. Chojiro, from staff through to works by contemporary and son.

  • It is a non cow exhibition and third Lok Road on went my reaction. -Focused room is dark, strong light from above the Bowl a dark underside was found. -Intense light for a tea-stained white colors and also stand out clearly, such as penetration, why show the shortcomings do not know. -Felt and had a bowl of compound sentences, silk gauze, greased and exhibits on the black Board, didn't care. -Bali was the seat seemed, for foreigners. And had people step one for showing the inside of the rice bowl (expected), it is a failure of thouh legs. -Bowl mark wanted to see but had no Panel, such as photos. -"Houjuu_nue" reading of the inscription of the Cup, nue, but felt unkind. Tegs aptto 鶴首 vase; I felt scared to watch. I thought it would have been striving of the Museum of fine arts, but want a little bit more than that. I would also visit a year later, for sure.

  • Think soft pottery 楽焼 has exhibited on a rigid plate. Think what happens when pitching earthquake, even utensils that should be displayed on tatami mats, such as there is to worry about. Exhibition room is surprisingly hard not seeing well. Is not doing the ceremony people notice and felt inches, Museum of fine arts.

  • Beautiful museum which tells the story of the Raku family. The building itself is a well kept old Japanese house, where all of the items are carefully exhibited. Each item are put in context of its time, creator and social meaning. You leave the place understanding the importance of the art. If you're into pottery and especially raku, it is a must-go. They have a nice library of japanese and english books which you can buy, and a lot of good flyers of other exhibitions to go to.
  • Expensive tickets for just a few tea cups. Granted, they are from the same artisan house for 14 generations, and the cups are all very well presented with excellent English explanations. However, on the quality of the pieces themselves I have a LOT more reservations. I find them all too ugly and way too unwieldy for the tea ceremony. I find their boasting of the stylistic link with tea master Rikyu somewhat disturbing. For some MUCH better and polished samples, go to the Gallery of Kyoto Traditional Arts & Crafts where students and their teachers display their works (like tea cups), and the marvelous Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts (Fureaikan).
  • Other than substituting as indeed overvalued for tickets. But to enjoy the leisurely atmosphere of the building and the bowl, enjoying such a time is recommended. I think it fun if you're interested.
