We enjoyed our visit at Noritake Museum and cafe. They let visitors walk along a guided line inside the warehouse., and we are so close to the crafters table that we can see the details works and all. At the end of warehouse visit, we can try to make our own china. More like decorate our own plate, dish or... More

This is a museum, educational facility, store, and outlet sales all in one. I primarily came for the museum, as I love to look at china tableware designs. I came to see if I could find my mother's Noritake china pattern at the museum, but it was not among the designs featured in the showcases. I asked the woman at... More

This was my second visit to Nagoya and to Noritake . The museum is well worth the visit and if you thought Noritake only made plates etc. you'll be pleasantly surprised. The cafe is very pleasant. Plenty of lovey pieces on display in the shop to buy.

Do you know they really use bones in bone china!?! Actually ash from cow bones, but still, a surprising fact I didn't know. I visited the headquarters, original factory site, and museum of Noritake China in Nagoya. Interesting enough place, with English translations available at some exhibits but not all. If you really like Noritake china, this is a great... More

The garden, the buildings, the kilns and the shoping store is a very nice complex. Here you will learn a lot about porcelain and all the craft work. In fact you can see people working on the workshop. The must fun is that you can paint a plate, an animal figure or a mug, they will send you the piece... More

The Noritake Forest comprises a museum, a restaurant, a workshop, a garden and a shop. Strolling through all the attractions takes up around 2 to 3 hours. Pre-booking is necessary for large groups to try their hand at ceramic painting and finished pieces can be mailed back to you. Entry into the information centre is free of charge and it... More

A fun thing to do if you have an extra moment in Nagoya - but by no means put this at the top of your list. May be more meaningful if you have noritake china at home, as I do (a dinner set gifted by a much loved relative). I probably wouldn't have gone otherwise. But it is a pleasant... More

From the moment I got off the hop-on-hop-off tour bus and met the parking attendant who gave me candy and walked and talked with me (in fabulous English for an elderly Japanese fellow) I was awestruck. The ceramic factory and display rooms where I bought some very nice (and expensive) dishes and art pieces are a must-see, when you're in... More

Along the way to the Toyota Museum we passed by Noritake park, took photos and relax a bit. It is a simple park but full of the company's history and beautiful brick buildings of its former factory.

These dinner services were famous in my parents day and Noritake is a house hold name in South Africa, so I thought I would take a look. The displays are very well laid out and I was impressed by what I learned in the welcome centre. The many applications of ceramic science in modern industry and the contributions the Noritake...
