Next to the Nopporo Forest Park, with all its beautiful autumn colours. Passing on the culture of Hokkaido’s bricks and pottery to today.

Hokkaido’s red brick production is said to have started around the end of the Edo period. The Ebetsu City ceramic centre has a "brick information exhibit room"displaying the history of Hokkaido brickwork, and the "northern pottery exhibit room" that displays the works of Hokkaido’s current pottery artists, as well as a workshop that holds pottery classes, and a library with materials concerning pottery and ceramics. Additionally, the Shinobu Komori Memorial Room keeps the works of Hokkaido’s greatest pottery researcher, Shinobu Komori, on permanent display for you to look at. If you want a souvenir, try the pottery shop that sells the works of artists living in Ebetsu. Climb to the watchtower of the building, and you’ll see the Noppori Forest Park, as well as a majestic view of countless trees painting the mountains.
