Set Your Mind On Seto, Japan’s Pottery & Ceramics Center

One thousand years of pottery, stoneware and ceramics history and culture is celebrated at the Seto-Gura Museum in one of the two major kiln areas of Aichi, Seto City. Pottery and chinaware from Seto became so famous that even now, all kiln fired items and ceramics are known as "Seto-yaki" ("Fired in Seto"), or "Seto-mono" ("Seto Goods"). Such was the artistic quality of Seto-ware, it is displayed in the Smithsonian and other museums and galleries around the world.
