Ohi Pottery Museum and Gallery
Not your typical museum. The Ohi Pottery Museum and Gallery is a celebration of a craft that’s transcended 11 generations. This family-run business makes ceramics have been a key component in the area’s tea ceremonies for some 350 years. Each piece is made using the same low-firing techniques, hand-building techniques and even kiln style as founder Ohi Chozaemon first used in the 17th century. Tour the intimate museum stacked with precious wares to understand more about its unique processes, before settling into the café next door. Here, you’ll select an Ohi-ware bowl before partaking in a tea ceremony accompanied by Kanazawa-style sweets.
