Nagoya, Japan (Noritake Garden)

These photos were taken on our last day in Nagoya, Japan. With that said, this travelogue series is nearing its end. But don't worry because this only means that another travelogue series is about to open. I am really blessed that these past 2 years I am able to travel to various places, experience different cultures and just be out there. I have always loved traveling but there were so many constraints before that hinder me from pursuing this passion. I wish to be able to travel even more in the coming years (though sometimes I do feel tired riding the airplane).

One of the last places we visited is Noritake Garden. This was not initially in our plan but I decided to include it anyway because I wanted to see their infamous tea sets. In case you didn't know, I am an old soul and I actually enjoy listening to 40's and 50's music while I eat my slice of cake or scone and sip my favorite freshly brewed green tea/chamomile tea. I love afternoons like that and I dream of being able to do that for the rest of my life. And as an afternoon tea fan, a quick trip to Noritake Garden, where the finest tea sets are made, is a no-brainer. It is a must!


They have a museum where you can observe how all of the ceramics are made. From the sculpting and molding to painting and placing stickers, visitors can observe how their beautiful tea sets are made from scratch. They also have floors where you can see all of the designs they were able to produce since the beginning of the company. On the second floor, they have a small souvenir shop and a workshop area for those interested in learning the art of painting on ceramics (not sure how much this costs and the time). They have a bigger souvenir shop outside (building a few steps away beside the museum) and a restaurant near the garden entrance. If you are also a fan of afternoon tea, you will definitely enjoy a quick visit to Noritake Garden.

  13. Looks like such a lovely trip. Your outfit is so chic! I lived in Japan and never made a stop into Nagoya. I had planned to, but didn't end up getting there. The craftsmenship, art and poetry in Japan is really something. :) Not as much as a lost art over there and that's pretty darn special, right? :)
