When I feel like relaxing and having coffee outside by myself. I take a drive to a pottery town Kasama, Ibaraki.
I can always find unique ceramics there and nice shop staff to chat with in the afternoon.
photos below were taken at gallery Butai
After checking out Butai, hopped to a gallery Kamagen which displayed a set of ceramic dolls for the girl's festival season called Ohinasama up to March 3rd.
