Seto-Gura Museum瀬戸蔵ミュージアム

Museum / Science Museum

The museum is located on the second and third floors of the Seto-Gura tourist facility, built on the old site of the Seto City Hall. Visitors can learn all about the history and culture surrounding Seto pottery which flourished here and became known as Seto-mono (pottery and porcelain). The museum houses displays which bring to life the work that was carried out at that time including a nostalgic reproduction of the original Owari Seto Station and streetcar, as well as a reproduction of a pottery workshop, called a moro, a coal fired kiln and chimney. There is also an area where you can enjoy some matcha green tea for a fee. A perfect place to relax after wondering around the museum. The nearest station is Owari Seto Station.

          Aichi Main Areas


          Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
