Hagi Uragami Museum

Art Museum
The Hagi Uragami Museum is a museum in Hagi City that is dedicated to Ukiyo-e woodblock prints, East Asian ceramics and ceramic art. The Museum was opened in 1996 to house a collection of items donated by businessman Uragami Toshiro (who was born in Hagi); it was awarded two stars in the Michelin Green Guide. There is a tearoom where visitors can enjoy drinking green tea out of Hagi-ware teacups, which is popular as a place to relax while enjoying viewing art at the Museum.
