  • My trip to the Aichi Prefectural Ceramic Museum was fascinating, and stimulated my creative imagination! The range of ceramics on display was absolutely dazzling. There were pieces from all over East....  more »
  • Quiet, easy to see, not crowded and very informational. I quite enjoyed it. My traveling companions did, too, and then we went to the ceramic shops and bought our wives gifts.  more »
  • An inexpensive place to learn how to make a clay bowl. A 15 minute tutorial is given before you start - it is very clear but is completely in Japanese. Tools and equipment are provided in the workshop and the staff/tutors are very helpful if needed. A very satisfying 90 minutes. The museum has a range of exhibits however there was no English translations available. The shop was disappointing in terms of choice and price. Worth the trip purely for the making. You do have to collect your pottery a month after making. It is possible to get it sent to a location in Japan though if you are a resident.
  • Great time at pottery classes here. Fair price for a fun experience!
  • good museum of ceramics and sculptures. especialy contemporary ceramics are really intersting to see.
  • 企画展示を観賞しに行きました。世界の焼き物が、年代を問わず集められ、テーマごとに展示してありました。紀元前の焼き物とか、芸術としての焼き物だけでなく、時代を語るものとしても楽しめました。 常設展示も見ましたが、少し内容は似ていたかな?展示の仕方が少し変えてある印象。どちらにせよ、沢山の焼き物を見れて大変楽しかったです。 施設としても、キチンと整備されていてすごいなぁという感想です。 写真もOKでしたので、いくつか撮ったものを。タイの魚文のお皿がとても可愛い。 本館入口の目の前にも少ないですが、一般でも止めれる駐車スペースがあります。空いてない場合は大駐車場など。
  • 常設展は縄文から近代に至るまでの陶磁器の展示、世界各国の陶磁器の展示。土日?には常設展入口にボランティアのガイドがいる。ボランティアのレベルは高くかなり掘り下げたガイドをしている。展示物の解説以上に興味があればガイドをお願いするのがおすすめ。
