  • 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.

  • The museum is quite big and in addition to the permanent exhibition hosts temporary exhibitions too. I particularly enjoyed the exhibition of contemporary art in the south pavilion I: on the show art pieces created by 奥直子. With a steady, not too fast pace, the museum can be fully explored in half a day. After visiting the museum you can have a very long, relaxing stroll in the beautiful Aichi Expo 2005 park very closeby the ceramics museum. In the park soon more Studio Ghibli art and attractions will show up.
  • It's a good museum. Also has an craft studio where you can participate in a pottery workshop or ceramic painting workshop at very cheap rates. Its extremely fun.
  • Amazing pottery with the literal oldest stuff ever discovered - some peices are nearly 10000 years old - if you are an enthusiast this is the place to be. There are a large variety of peices to look at and despite the location being relatively hard to access from a major city I would consider this a worthwhile venture for an enthusiast.
  • 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.
  • Best place to go. If you want to make ceramic things. So much fun.
