Kamagaki-no-Komichi is a 400m walking path inside of the town of Nakabora, located in Seto City, Aichi prefecture. This town is steeped in the culture and history of regional pottery. The walkway itself has characteristic geometric walls and fences made from piled-up and buried kamadogu (old, no longer used kiln tools) that give it a particular atmosphere. This was formerly the main street of Nakabora and many carts loaded with ceramics regularly passed through here.
When you walk through the Kamagaki-no-Komichi path, right about in the middle is the Kamagaki-no-Komichi Museum. This building was originally established in the Meiji era (1868–1912) as the Hongyoyaki pottery shop. The building has been preserved in its original style to create a tasteful museum. Inside the museum you will find kiln tools and Meiji & Taisho-era bathrooms made with the extremely popular "hongyo tiles", as well as Seto some-zuke bedpans that have been preserved. The museum is an excellent introduction to the history and culture of the Nakabora area.
On the Meitetsu go to Owari-Seto Station (尾張瀬戸駅)and from there take the Meitetsu Bus or JR Bus headed in the Shinano direction, and after a 5 minute ride get off at the Seto Park stop (瀬戸公園) and walk 3 minutes from there. If you walk directly from Owari-Seto Station it is a 20 minute walk.
