Kawai Kanjiro Museum
For a really great example of a wonderfully atmospheric Japanese house do make the effort to seek out this spectacular museum just south of Gojo street near Higashioji dori – once the home of famous Kyoto potter Kawai Kanjiro.
Once inside you can see and feel exactly why the artist was so inspired to create here. A lovely place to wander and sit and soak it all in. Visitors are encouraged to enjoy the house, garden and kiln area at a leisurely pace. Read about the history of the house and Kawai Kanjiro himself, page through beautiful books and see many examples of Kanjiro san’s work while you are there.
