Gratefulness for the past, hope for the future

In the city of Tokoname, October 10th is the "To-to-To-no-Hi". Written "陶と灯の日" in kanji, it means “Ceramics and Lights Day” and on this day, as well as on some days preceding and after it, several events are held throughout the city in order to celebrate the life and achievements of Chozaburi Ina, an entrepreneur and achieved man that contributed enormously for the development of the ceramics industry of that region. Event venues include the INAX Museum, the Downtown Market Streets, the Ceramall (Tokoname-ware Ceramics Wholesale Mall), the Tokoname Tounomori, among others.

Chozaburo Ina was an outstanding man who founded the famous INAX Company (recently renamed to LIXIL) and was the first mayor of the city of Tokoname when it became a municipality in 1954. During his life, the accomplished man greatly contributed towards the preservation and improvement of the ancient pottery techniques of the region, as well as the development of its industry. Besides the contributions by his own company, generating thousands of employment posts, he donated large sums of money that were used to build facilities nowadays considered essential to the economic and cultural apects of the city, such as the Tokoname Tounomori, which is composed by the Museum, the Ceramics Lab and the Training Studio.
