JAPANESE POTTERY at A KILN with ONE OF JAPAN'S MOST CELEBRATED ARTISANS
Through your personalized pottery arts experience, enjoy the hospitality of traditional Japanese cuisine and traditional Japanese tea
Japan is home to one of the most vibrant ceramic and pottery cultures in the world. It may also be the source of one of the oldest earthenware traditions, having begun around at least 12,000 years ago. The tradition has since spread around the world, featuring original innovations in technology, design, and materials from different regions in Japan.
About The Experience
We cordially invite you to experience first hand these ancient Japanese pottery-making techniques.
Kitaoji Rosanjin, an artist who twice declined to be declared a living national treasure, developed the famous Hoshino Kiln, now known and preserved in history as the Kichuyo Kiln.
For some time, patrons of the fine arts from around the world, as well as craftsmen from many famous Japanese traditional restaurants, came to see this kiln in their pursuit of knowledge. Through this experience, we wish to offer you the opportunity to see how generations of artisans have passed down this tradition, and experience it for yourself.
You will craft your own handmade piece of pottery, which will be completed using traditional Japanese kiln techniques and delivered to you.
Also, as part of this offer, we invite you to visit a special tea room available exclusively to our guests where you may learn more about the rich history of Japanese ceramics.
Take a moment to step away from the crowded city to relax and have an unforgettable experience enjoying one of Japan's finest arts.
