Here you can try your hand at making Inuyama-yaki. The pottery kilns at Ozeki Sakujuro Aioi Ceramic Studio have been passed down for generations since the founder, Ozeki Sakujuro, over 200 years ago. These are the only remaining ascending kilns in Inuyama.
You can pick from two courses, the Handbuilding Course or the Pottery Wheel Course. Try your hand at making bowls or cups (¥2,500/90mins). Your pottery will be baked afterward and you can arrange to have it shipped to your home. The instructor speaks some English so don't worry if your Japanese isn't up to snuff. Reservations can be made in advance and you can arrange for a pickup and drop off at Inuyama Station for no additional cost.
