In the Asahi Beer Oyamazaki Villa Museum south of Kyoto, an exhibit of "Utsuwa" - containers and dishes made of materials such as clay, wood, glass and metal - is now under way.

It features works by Kanjiro Kawai, Shoji Hamada, Bernard Leach, and Lucie Rie, an all star line up.

Moreover, there is antique pottery from East to West from the museum collections.

For those with time, also close is the Suntory Yamazaki distillery.
