This fairly new museum boasts an awesome and quite extensive collection of priceless historical Noritake bone china pieces. They stand behind protective plexiglass, but their beauty emits through the lucite haze. One case shows the design pages that the artisans used for hand painting the designs onto the china bowls and vases. We enjoyed the plant tour and seeing how... More

The Garden is small and designed as a pleasant place for families. There are restaurants, museums and and factory outlet store. It was early spring and little was in bloom aside from the Cherry trees,

We enjoyed our visit at Noritake Museum and cafe. They let visitors walk along a guided line inside the warehouse., and we are so close to the crafters table that we can see the details works and all. At the end of warehouse visit, we can try to make our own china. More like decorate our own plate, dish or... More

This is a museum, educational facility, store, and outlet sales all in one. I primarily came for the museum, as I love to look at china tableware designs. I came to see if I could find my mother's Noritake china pattern at the museum, but it was not among the designs featured in the showcases. I asked the woman at... More

This was my second visit to Nagoya and to Noritake . The museum is well worth the visit and if you thought Noritake only made plates etc. you'll be pleasantly surprised. The cafe is very pleasant. Plenty of lovey pieces on display in the shop to buy.

Do you know they really use bones in bone china!?! Actually ash from cow bones, but still, a surprising fact I didn't know. I visited the headquarters, original factory site, and museum of Noritake China in Nagoya. Interesting enough place, with English translations available at some exhibits but not all. If you really like Noritake china, this is a great... More

The garden, the buildings, the kilns and the shoping store is a very nice complex. Here you will learn a lot about porcelain and all the craft work. In fact you can see people working on the workshop. The must fun is that you can paint a plate, an animal figure or a mug, they will send you the piece... More

The Noritake Forest comprises a museum, a restaurant, a workshop, a garden and a shop. Strolling through all the attractions takes up around 2 to 3 hours. Pre-booking is necessary for large groups to try their hand at ceramic painting and finished pieces can be mailed back to you. Entry into the information centre is free of charge and it... More
