Traditional Tobe-yaki Pottery Industrial Hall砥部焼伝統産業会館

Art Museum

This museum in Tobe Town, Iyo County, Ehime Prefecture provides information on the history of “Tobe-yaki,” one of Japan’s traditional forms of pottery. Tobe-yaki was created in 1775 under the directive of Kato Yasutoki, the feudal lord of the Ozu Domain at the time. The museum exhibits materials on Tobe-yaki’s history, unique features, and production process. In addition to precious Tobe-yaki samples, there are exhibits on other forms of pottery as well. On the second floor you’ll find individual exhibits, group exhibits, and a variety of other planned exhibits. There’s also an area where visitors can purchase their own Tobe-yaki potteries.

          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country's oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
