Ohi Ware Museum

Museum telling the story of 350 years of history of Ohi-yaki pottery

Opened in 1990, 

This museum offers visitors a glimpse into the history of Ohi-ware pottery and the tea ceremony culture of Kaga-Kanazawa, from Chozaemon I to the present day. 


The Ohi Ware with 350 years of history, does not use any wheel, but is formed by hand, and is characterized by its amber glaze. 


The three exhibition halls present the history of Ohi-ware pottery over 350 years, the present, and new traditions, with a focus on the amber graze presented by the Raku family, the designs favored by Senso, and the creative works of each successive generation. Representative works include “Ohi Glazed Water Jar with Sea Urchin Handles by Chozaemon I (designated as a cultural property by Ishikawa Prefecture)” and “Ohi Glazed Sacred Tea Bowl by Chozaemon I”. In the adjoining Ohi Gallery, works by Ohi Tojisai (Ohi Chozaemon X: Order of Cultural Merit, member of the Japan Art Academy) and Ohi Chozaemon XI (visiting professor at Rochester Institute of Technology) are on display and for sale. You can also drink matcha (powdered green tea) with Ohi-ware in the tea room (for a fee).
