Inside Kawai Kanjiro's House in Kyoto

As you descend Chawan-zaka (Teacup Slope), you'll come across shops selling Kiyomizu-yaki style pottery. For more ceramics, several minutes' walk away is the home of Kanjiro Kawai, now a museum dedicated to this lauded 20th-century ceramicist and a key member of the mingei (folk craft) movement that also included Shoji Hamada and Shiko Munakata.

Once you're done looking at the beautiful works of art, take your time to admire the building with its wooden beams, fireplaces and sweeping views of the surrounding hills.
