A museum dedicated to all things tea ceremony and to Ohi Chozaemon Ware in particular.

Entry is 700yen, but there is a gallery/gift shop with incredibly expensive wares (1 ¥1,700,000 tea cup!) near the entrance that can be browsed for free.

The gift shop might be worth a quick detour if you’re also in the area to see either the Kazue-machi Chaya District or the Higashi Chaya District just across the river.
