Tea ceremony has been cherished by tea lovers since ancient times. A teacup that becomes even more attached by taking it in your hand. Tea ceremony and tea bowls are the most popular tools in today's tea ceremony.

The book, which has 9 volumes and 11 volumes, featured 875 tea bowls and tea bowls (including heavenly eyes) and clearly provided guidelines for viewing them.
This exhibition, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of its publication, outlines the process of the establishment of the "Daisei Meikan" mainly on tea bowls and tea bowls in the museum in Chapter 1, and in Chapter 2, through the works used in the publication-related events, the knitter Yoshio Takahashi (1999) From 1861 to 1937, you will see the testimony of the friendship between No. 1861-1937 and the first Kaichiro Nezu (1860-1940, No. Aoyama(Seizan)) who laid the foundation for the museum's collection.
