Venue: Aichi Prefectural Ceramic Museum When: Oct 10th - Dec 13th 2020, 9:30am - 4:30pm

A special exhibition taking place at the Aichi Prefectural Ceramic Museum is titled "Yayoi: The Advent of Japanese Aesthetics". The exhibition focuses on the shapes, colors, paintings and patterns of earthenware, stone tools, woodware, and more from the Yayoi Period (generally accepted as the timeframe from 300 BC to 300 AD).

The exhibition is unique as other events on the Yayoi Period tend to focus solely on history, however this exhibition specifically looks at it from the angle of beauty.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 900 yen.

Getting there

The Aichi Prefectural Ceramic Museum is located just over 10 minutes on foot from the Tojishiryokan Minami Station, served by the Linimo Line.

For those who are driving to the museum, take the Nagakute IC from the Nagoya Seto Road, and the venue is around a 5 kilometer drive away. Free on-site parking is available for up to 250 vehicles.

I'm an Australian who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan - specifically Tokyo and Niigata. I've  visited 44 of 47 prefectures, with only Kagoshima, Miyazaki and Kumamoto left to check out. 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.

I had a look - after Seeing the exhibition, there’s a real tea house to have a cup of matcha.

I think this exhibition might have been in Saitama before - I recognize the name! Unrelated, but can I ask - how long does it take to get posts approved recently? I hadn't submitted in a while - maybe half a year! But I've submitted about 8 in the last few days and none of them have been approved yet - do I need to message someone or just be patient? :) Thanks a mill

It will depend who your regional partner is, but let me take a look! I should be able to look into it for you!
