Seto-Gura Museum | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Nagoya Station 

[Seto-Gura Museum]

Explore the old Seto townscape and have fun learning about the culture of Seto

You arrive at Owari Seto Station on a green Seto Line train car, and walk out onto the streets of Seto... This is the concept behind Seto-Gura Museum. After soaking in the retro feel of the old Seto Line train, check out the town streets of days gone by. Have fun learning about the culture and history behind the ceramics of Seto. Learn about the pottery-making process at the "Yakimono Kojo" kiln, see pottery of all sorts displayed at the storefront of "Setomono-ya", and check out "Chuo-Dori Gallery", which showcases the Seto ware of the present day.
