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!
