Raku Museum

Raku Museum

Raku ware was first produced in the Momoyama period (1583-1600) by the potter Chojiro I. Tradition has it that Hideyoshi conferred the Chinese character for "raku" on this new ware from his own residence known as "Jurakudai". The Raku pottery is a typical Kyo-machiya house, with bent bamboo fencing and latticed bay window at the front entrance and noren, or shop curtain, billowing within. Next door stands the museum, which displays famous tea bowls, tea-ceremony utensils and documents related to 15 generations of Chojiro potters. (Month checked: 2018.Dec, )
