Venue: Takahama City Yakimono no Sato Kawara Museum When: Oct 31st - Dec 20th 2020, 10:00am - 5:00pm

Takahama City in Aichi Prefecture is a major center of production for Sanshu roof tiles - in fact, this region produces the highest volume of them in all of Japan. A special exhibition at the Takahama City Yakimono no Sato Kawara Museum looks into the role of soil and fire in the production of these tiles and other pottery pieces, with a range of both functional and aesthetically-inspired items on display.

Alongside the examples of tiles and other pottery pieces in the exhibition, there will be pottery and landscape photography from Koji Nakano to enjoy.

Adult admission to the event is 200 yen.

Getting there

The Takahama City Yakimono no Sato Kawara Museum is located a 10 minute walk from Takahama Port Station on the Meitetsu Mikawa Line.

Alternatively, for those who plan to drive, the museum is around 15 minutes drive from the Agui Interchange on the Chitahantō Toll Road. Free on-site parking is available for 100 vehicles.

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.
