Hachimanyaki Kiln

 

 The workshop is only a 5 minute drive from the Adachi Museum of Art, which is famous worldwide for its splendid gardens. The lecturer, Ms. Ajiki, always welcomes visitors with a cheerful smile. One of the features of Hachimanyaki is its bluish green color created by the glaze, and Ms. Ajiki’s works can be seen at a gallery next to her workshop. What you can’t miss here is the works by her father, who is also a Hachimanyaki craftsman. You will find a fragile beauty in the patterns crafted by using leaves.
