Kurita Museum

One of the largest museums of ceramics with Imari and Nabeshima collections in the world.
Here, on the outskirts of Ashikaga, on 24.5 acres chosen for its picturesque scenery and taking advantage of nature, is a garden of mainly wild grass. In the garden is the main museum building, a historical building, a memorial church for unknown potters, and the pottery hall as well as the main gate, and the Holland Hall.
A large feature of the museum is that it displays only Imari and Nabeshima pottery wares of the Edo period  created by the Nabeshima clan.
