4.0

Art Museum

Shoji Hamada was a potter and living national treasure. This memorial hall in Mashiko Town, Haga County, Tochigi Prefecture showcases his pottery collection. Of course, Mr. Hamada’s own work is on display, as is the work of his colleagues Kawai Kanjiro, Bernard Leach, and others. The facility consists of Hamada’s residence and a portion of his workshop. An exhibition hall, studio, his climbing kiln, and a seasonal flower garden are all open to the public.

          Most visits to Tochigi revolve around Nikko, a small city home to the spectacular, lavishly decorated Toshogu Shrine and Nikko National Park with its mountains, lakes, waterfalls, onsen, and wild monkeys. Neighboring Oku-Nikko is an extension of the fantastic scenery famous for its autumn leaves, while Tochigi’s capital, Utsunomiya, is the only place in the world where you can find oya stone beautifully exhibited in temples and the Oya History Museum.
