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

4.0

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.

砥部の陶芸関係施設で最初にここに来ました。JAFの割引対象になっていました。他の焼物産地と比べたときの砥部焼の傾向がわかり参考になりました。駐車場は前にありました。トイレ内の手洗いシンクが陶芸作品なのが印象的でした。

最近、食器への興味が再燃し
特に砥部焼のシンプルなデザインに魅せられ、窯元巡りに行きました。
いろいろ巡りましたが、ココが一番合理的な価格設定でした。

          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.
