Tokoname Pottery Promenade

About

Tokoname City where the Central Japan International Airport (Centrair) is located, is a ceramic city with about 1,000-year history, Tokoname is one of the six ancient kiln sites in Japan. During the feudal days, tea ceremony utensils were mainly made here followed by reddish brown earthenware teapots, and earthen pipes in accordance with the needs of the time. At the pottery promenade, you will see the landscape of brick stacks used in around 1940’s to 1960’s when the earthen pipe making was in its heyday, and along the maze-like allies many pottery shops and galleries stand in a row. In this area, such highlights as Takita family’s house, once flourished as a successful shipping agent, multi-chambered climbing kilns built in around 1887, now designated as an important cultural asset and INAX Live Museum are all located.
