Great Stuff to See and Do!

The garden was formed on the former Noritake factory grounds

Noritake GardenNoritake is a ceramics maker globally known for its “Noritake China.” Noritake Garden is a ceramics facility located on the grounds of Noritake headquarters, the very birthplace of modern pottery. It is a vast area of around 22,000 square meters in the center of Nagoya City, and is divided into three zones with different concepts: the Culture Zone, where you can discover culture; the Commercial Zone, a place to enjoy daily living; and the Historical Zone, a place to experience history. The facility is surrounded by rich greenery that offers a relaxing environment and different views in each season.
