May 8, the nine high school students of the Sekisui Museum Project Team paid a visit to the museum after school.
We arrived at the museum on foot, and were immediately impressed at the modern building and its beautiful surroundings deep in the forests of Mt. Chitose. We listened carefully as the museum curators told us about Kawakita Handeishi, a famous ceramic artist from Tsu, whose works are exhibited in the museum. We then met in the meeting room and exchanged ideas with the curators and staff of the museum.
The museum is eager to attract more young people, and people from other countries. The museum has asked St. Joseph to work with them to translate information labels and other documents into English. We will also be thinking of ways of improving the museum’s social media profile.
