  • Lovely historical pottery and ceramics. Not big but thoughtful, well displayed pieces. The big surprise is the exquisite garden surrounding it. The moss garden especially.  more »
  • We hadn't planned to visit this but were on the cable car passing by and when they announced it we thought we would pop in to take a look. From our point of view it was worth it just to walk through.....  more »
  • Heavenly, Japanese-style garden and a beautiful collection of old ceramics dating back to the Jomon Period.
  • Honestly the garden is the best bit providing it's not winter
