Located in Toranomon, near Roppongi, the Musée Tomo is home to one of the most significant collections of contemporary Japanese ceramic art in the world. The museum was founded in 2003 by Tomo Kikuchi, one of the country's greatest supporters of ceramic arts as a way to showcase the work of outstanding ceramic artists to the broader community.
On display, you'll find a rotating collection of works from master potters and up-coming talents. One of the gallery’s main highlights is the annual Kikuchi Biennale, an open competition created to encourage new ceramic artists to share their work. The event started in 2004 and is held every other year.
