Imari Nabeshima Pottery Gallery

Other Sightseeing Spot
"This pottery town showcases ""Nabeshima porcelain"". In 1675, the Nabeshima clan relocated a pottery kiln from Arita to Okawachiyama, and many kilns were created there. At the time, the technique of firing glazed porcelain in a high temperature kiln was kept secret, and for that reason, the Nabeshima feudal clan established checkpoints to strictly control the entrances and exits of Okawachiyama. Even today traces of the old town and checkpoints remain scattered around the city. Many potters still produce pottery and visitors can observe kilns and purchase ceramic wares."

    Good maps and they really try very hard to help, so their little bit of English plus my little bit of Japanse went a long way. Very good japanese snacks for sale, you feel like buying some because...

    伊万里焼の窯元が集まる大川内鍋島窯跡にある伊万里鍋島焼会館 軽食・喫茶コーナーです。伊万里牛すじカレーを頂きました。1300円のドリンク付きセットをオーダー。カレーにはトロトロの牛スジがたっぷりで、程よいスパイスのカレーと良く合います。ホットコーヒーも美味しかったです。器は伊万里焼きが使われており、伊万里で伊万里牛を伊万里焼きで頂けて良かったです。
  • 古い、展示少ない、、

    無料駐車場有ります。こちらに止めて付近散策出来ます。館内の展示品は、そんなに多くなくて、説明、歴史感も、イマイチですかねぇ、、暗い場所も有り、雰囲気は良くないかも、無料ですから、損はないと思いますが。
