Tokoname: Ceramics Reused as Art
Some left over decorative eave tiles.
A view of Tokoname.
More tiles decorated by people. The tiles have drawings and words about the area.
I really enjoyed the pathways. They reused the ceramics that they didn't sell into a different type of art.
Some close-ups of the pathway.
I liked this seating arrangement. Good for a little picnic if you are interested.
Some more use of ceramics to decorate the walls along the pathways.
A black and white version of the walking path.
A look back from the direction that we came from.
This is a wall with ceramic pots that weren't sold for whatever reason.
There are many pathways around this city. They have 2 walking courses, an A course and a B course. We went on the A course which is longer and more popular. I highly recommend a day spent walking around this area. You should also make a stop at the tile museum INEX where you can make a Mosaic out of small tile pieces!
