By Appointment is best. You might get lucky just popping by, but a great deal of the month I am out visiting artists or scouring up new items, so days in the gallery are limited.
In accordance with the request of local authorities our gallery in Kyoto will be closed from April 1st until further notice.

A large Kashiki sweets dish decorated with white blossoming plum on iron shaded with blue-gray by Shino Legend Hayashi Shotaro enclosed in the original signed wooden box. The thick blue clings to the iron, seemingly anchored into the su-ana pinholes so characteristic of Shino ware. The vessel is roughly 9-1/2 inches (24 cm) square, over 3 inches (8.5 cm) tall and in perfect condition. The original exhibition price was over 1,500 dollars. Shotaro (b. 1947) is one of the biggest names in contemporary Mino ceramics. He first began with a 7 year apprenticeship under his older brother Kotaro, ending when he established his own kiln in 1974. Since then his list of exhibitions and awards has been amazing, including the Nihon Dento Kogei Ten (National Traditional Arts and Crafts Exhibition), Governors Prize and five times winner of Best of Show at the Asahi Togei Ten (Asahi Ceramics Exhibition), and Best of Show at Gifu Prefectural Exhibition.
