  • Live in one of the “six old kiln villages” of Japan. Echizen is a ceramic tourist destination and home to dozens of ceramic artists.
  • Participate in a 3-day firing of an anagama wood kiln, and visit archaeological kiln sites near Echizen.
  • Learn the ancient coil-building method called nejitate.
  • Experience the artistic and cultural treasures of Kyoto and Kanazawa, cities that combine ancient traditions with the best of modern Japan.
  • Visit nearby villages devoted to traditional paper making and metal work.
  • See local environmentally sustainable practices in the arts.
  • Experience how the arts can be part of “placemaking” and building a community identity.
  • Showcase your artistry in an exhibition of student work open to the public.
