  • It is located in a quiet residential area just off the main street. You can see a lot of precious rakuchabowls. However, it is careful because photography is prohibited inside. I think that it is suitable for the person who wants to spend quietly in Kyoto.

  • It is a museum of the rakuyafamily of the rakuchabowl. It is exhibited from time to time with the work of the people from the first generation Nagajiro to the current 15th generation and the next 16 generations. It's a small museum next to the rakuya's workshop, but you can change from shoes to slippers to relax. In addition, a tea party that can be enjoyed by parents and children is held at the time of the festival in May with hina-sama, and while the wife of 15 generations explains it to children so as to understand, it is possible to enjoy it with the tools and teacups of the people of the rakufamily generation. At this hina-sama tea ceremony, the girls in kindergarten gave me a peach red bowl from 200 years ago. It is possible to participate until the third year of junior high school, and the adult is 3,000 yen, but the child can receive delicious sweets, dried sweets, and thin matcha. Today, I had a teacup when I was young in my 15th generation, and my child was in the black music of the 14th generation. Your wife's story was very fun and interesting, and it was good.

  • Excellent place to know the best tea pottery style. Raku yaki.
  • We stumbled upon this place by accident and it turned out to be quite fascinating. I enjoyed following the history and looking at the old raku ware through the ages. I personally really enjoy pottery, ceramics, etc., so unless you're a fan you might not enjoy this museum as much as I did.
