Located on a hill with a view of downtown Shigaraki, this cultural park provides visitors with information about traditional Japanese ceramics, or "Shigarakiyaki". The 40 ha large area is scenic with seasonal changes. Visitors can appreciate ceramics and enjoy a walk in nature on a walking trail. The park also includes the Institute of Ceramic Studies. Since its establishment in 1992, the institute has provided an opportunity for ceramic artists from around the world to stay over a longer period of time and produce ceramic works in the environment of Shigaraki.
