While collecting, preserving, and displaying valuable documents related to the art, history and industry of ceramics, the Aichi Prefectural Ceramic Museum (the former Aichi-ken Toji Shiryokan) carries out investigative research in order to spread and develop the culture of ceramics and promote the pottery industry. The museum is one of the largest in Japan specializing in ceramics, overseeing a collection of some 7,020 ceramic pieces (as of the end of March 2015) including Chinese and Korean porcelain, Islamic pottery, and of course Japanese ceramics, pottery work from the pre-modern and modern ages, and industrial ceramics. Covering a huge plot of land stands the museum's main building with exhibition galleries, the Ceramic Craft Studio where you can try your hand at pottery and bisque-painting, and the teahouse "Tosui-an" where you can sip matcha from a bowl made by your favorite ceramists. In addition, there is a restaurant and souvenir shop where you can grab a bite to eat and enjoy some shopping.
