Welcome to the Hagi Uragami Museum

Hagi Uragami Museum

The Hagi Uragami Museum was founded in 1996 to preserve and exhibit a splendid collection of oriental arts donated by Hagi-born entrepreneur Toshiro Uragami. His outstanding collection includes about 5,300 ukiyoe works by leading artists such as Utagawa Hiroshige, Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Kuniyoshi, about 500 oriental ceramic wares from China and Korea, and about 750 modern potteries (as of 2015). The building expanded in 2010 with the addition of the Pottery Annex in order to accommodate additional ceramic art, including Hagi ceramics representing a history of 400 years. “Michelin Green Guide Japan 2009” rated the Museum as a two-star tourist attraction – the highest ranked attraction in Yamaguchi Prefecture, in addition to “Kintai Bridge”, one of the three most beautiful bridges in all of Japan.
