About “Explore Japanese Ceramics”

We urge you to visit Japan at least once to experience the culture of Japanese ceramics.

Each country in the world has its unique ceramics culture. However we believe that the culture of ceramics in Japan is characterized by world-leading advanced techniques. Japan is unique within the cultures of the world and “Japanese ceramics culture” has been nurtured within that context. Our ceramics culture has fostered both a unique world view and a range of techniques which are applied to the smallest details. Everyday life in Japan is certainly not ornate and has developed an aesthetic which is refined through wabi and sabi.

In Japan, we also have the proverb “a picture is worth a thousand words”. By all means, we hope that you will experience a trip to Japan at least once. Your understanding of Japanese ceramics will be deepened by coming into direct contact with Japan, experiencing the ambience of local regions and by hands-on experience. A multitude of experiences during your stay and meeting local people will be certain to give you a vivid and memorable experience.

We are professionals in the area of Japanese ceramics tours. We use our network of famous production sites, artists and firing kilns throughout Japan to provide a basic ceramics-oriented tour which is not available through other tour companies. We also have specializations in providing experiences in aspects of Japanese culture in addition to ceramics and can arrange tours focusing on Tea Ceremony, Bonsai and various traditional crafts. Our trip to Japan will be an unforgettable wonderful experience. An enjoyable holiday in Japan awaits you.
