Cizhou ware is a term that encompasses a wide range of Chinese ceramics from the late Tang dynasty to the early Ming dynasty. These ceramic pieces were typically black and white, and decorated using a range of different techniques. A special exhibition taking place at the Torek Museum of Art in Nakano will showcase a range of these Cizhou ware pieces, displayed alongside some stunning traditional Japanese folding screens by Suzuki Kiitsu, a revered Edo period painter.

Adult admission to the special exhibition is priced at 400 yen.

I'm an Australian who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also 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.
