Nagoya is home to the world famous Noritake line of ceramic wares. This facility is a multi-faceted providing you history, technical knowledge and art appreciation opportunities. The park and outlet stores are free to the public but fees are collected for the museum showcasing the craft and science of producing a ceramic art piece. Another highlight of the museum is a gallery dedicated for visitors to design personalized souvenirs, of which you make your plate, wind-chime, or figurine. This could eat up your day if you are a serious artist...This workshop is really fun, and the best thing is they mail your product anywhere you live.
If you go hungry, restaurants are within the facility, which are also venues for weddings and occasions. The gardens are a good to place to contemplate,and serves as an al fresco extension of the cafe adjacent to the outlet store. The outlet store sells the best Noritake bargains around with a wide array of crafts... from the serious tea cups and saucers, the classic, modern collections of tablewares and novel Japanese animation characters...to historic commemorative items.
As a person who constantly entertains visitors or relatives dropping by Nagoya, I always make it to a point that a Noritake Garden visit is one of my itineraries. And as a give- away present, a Noritake craft speaks more than words...
