HYOGO

"Pottery from Hyogo's Five Provinces"

The Museum Of Ceramic Art, Hyogo


By TOMOKO HORI

The Museum of Ceramic Art, Hyogo — founded in 2005 in Tachikui, home to Tamba Tachikui ware pottery — has an important role as a research facility for those interested in Hyogo-based ceramics, such as Tamba, Sanda and Minpei wares.
