Noritake no Mori (Garden)
Noritake no Mori is a complex with a 48,000-square-meter large garden, restaurants and a museum, sponsored by the traditional ceramic company "Noritake." The buildings used to be an ancient factory of the former Noritake, called Nippon Toki Kaisha, built in 1904. As a result, they are made of very charming red bricks. In fact, it has won many prizes such as the "Good design award" and "Governmental award of organization for building national communities." Furthermore, the place is illuminated beautifully during Christmas in every winter. It has became a famous winter event of Noritake no Mori.
