Omihachiman Roof Tile Museum

Private museum displaying gorgeous kawara

Kawara, or roof tiles (and ornaments), are one of the things that give Japanese traditional architecture its unique character.  On the banks of beautiful Omihachiman Canal there is a small private museum owned by a company which makes kawara. Unfortunately photography is not permitted inside, but there are many beautiful roof ornaments on display. The museum itself is a great example of modern architecture that incorporates traditional elements.
