Key points for getting popularity; very Japanese original, no similarity or one and only in Japan, having a long history,
and not so far away from the major sightseeing area like Kyoto. I think all of these conditions are contained in Bizen.
Most of people are from Okayama ar nearby prefectures.
Very few foreign people know this exhibition or Bizen ceramics.
This is completely different from recent Japanese cultural events which is fully occupied by foreign tourists.
Among Japanese traditional ceramics, Bizen establish one of the highest reputation.
