Kyoto Ceramic Center (京都陶磁器会館)

3.5

Souvenirs

This gallery is ten minutes' walk from Kiyomizu-Gojo Station or ten minutes' drive from Kyoto station. It's at the entrance of Gojozaka, known as the origin of Kiyomizu ware, and displays new pieces from workshops with long years of experience at the traditional development and young potters active in Kyoto. The naturally lit interior and chance to get a feel for the various facets of Kyo ware and Kiyomizu ware make this gallery quite attractive. They also have regular solo and special exhibits, carry out Kyo ware manufacture demonstrations, and can be used as a base for educating new, young potters and raising successors.

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
