With a history dating back to the early Edo period, Kutani ware is a traditional type of Japanese porcelain which originates from what is modern-day Kaga, Ishikawa Prefecture. A short drive away in Nomi City, an annual Kutani Chawan (tea bowl) festival takes place for three days during Golden Week, and it has been running for over a century.

The event is scheduled at several different venues (the full list can be found at the bottom of the official site), and each location will have a variety of Kutani ware pieces available to purchase from different artisans.
