Recently I visited the pottery museum in Tobe. Pottery is very important to my family, and my parents and my brother are all potters and teachers of pottery in Australia. In fact my mother first learned pottery in Nara when she was an exchange student during high school. Both my family and I are very interested in the history and specialized techniques of Japanese pottery. I enjoyed my visit to the Tobe pottery museum and learned a lot about Tobe-yaki.


The museum had many examples of pottery throughout Tobe’s history and good information explaining the materials and techniques used to make Tobe-yaki. I was especially interested to see the tools that are used to shape clay, grind glaze materials and fire pots.



Throughout the museum there were small signs with QR codes that provided English translations of all the information. The English translations were very well written with perfect grammar and vocabulary. I appreciate the hard work that Tobe pottery museum has done to be welcoming to English-speaking visitors!



There were many beautiful pots at the museum, and even the bathroom sinks were handmade pottery!



I enjoyed my visit to the pottery museum very much. I loved seeing so many examples of the amazing and unique pottery of Tobe!
