Ichinokura Oribe Street
A town that prides itself on being the largest sake cup production center in all of Japan!
Many old and famed ceramic kilns dot the town, where a number of renowned ceramic artisans still breathe life into their work. One must-see destination is the Ichinokura Sakazuki Art Museum, which showcases sake cups and the works of a few artists who are considered National Treasures. And another is Kobeigama, a kiln where Mino Ware has been made for over 200 years.
At these and many of the other kilns and pottery stores that you will spot around town, you can not only buy top-grade ceramic ware, but you can also try your hand at making some yourself, from clay sculpting to hand-painting!
Going around to several of the kilns is the best way to enjoy the history and artistry that lives on in Ichinokura to this day!
