Kutani Kosen Pottery Kiln

This is a long-established store continuing since 1870, located at the “Kutani-yaki” pottery, a craft representative of Ishikawa Prefecture. All the work is completed by hand from molding the clay to the first kiln, second firing and decorating with glaze, and the techniques of old Kokutani and revived Kutani continued to be protected even today. In addition to being able to see the manufacturing process in the workshop, visitors are able to experience painting a design to make their very own original piece. There is an exhibition room with a variety of kiln artwork, and pieces from traditional style to those of everyday use are for sale. The nearest station is Nomachi Station.
