“Namikawa Cloisonne Museum Tour”

If you are interested in beautiful pottery, we highly recommend “Namikawa Cloisonne Museum”in Kyoto.

Yasuyuki Namikawa is a Shippo (Cloisonne ware) artist from Kyoto who represents the 1900s in Japan.


Shippo has been widely known as “Namikawa” all over the world and his artworks have been appreciated among selective collectors.

The artworks are small, but the wonderful designs and sense of color are original.
We feel strong impression from the delicate, elegant these artworks.


Shippo is created by such delicate handmade and needs such a long time to be made that there are not so many of them left and they are very valuable.


We can see his splendid work in Namikawa Cloisonne Museum.
The museum has 130 works of his precious works and has the most number of his works in Japan. We can see a part of the 130 works.

He used a technique of cloisonne enamel ware called ‘yusenshippo’.
The technique, which requires a high level, divides colors with thin metal lines.

The designs drawn have various motifs ranging from the beauties of nature (“Kachofugetsu” in Japanese” to famous places in Japan. They are all delicate pictures as if they were drawn with pencils.

You can enjoy seeing highlight which not only the wonderful artworks but also the museum building and the famous garden of the museum.

There are a Kyoto style old house called Kyo-machiya(Kyoto style old house) and a kiln which were built in 1894.

Since they are left as just like those days, we can imagine the scenery of him working scenery of in Namikawa.
