Chinaware by Yasuhiko Kato, the seventh generation head of the Shingyokuen kiln. The blue-and-white porcelain of Seto originated at the beginning of the nineteenth century and is characterized by glossy surfaces and skillfully hand-painted bright indigo designs. The ware is used primarily for the tea ceremony and flower arrangement, as well as for functional tableware and decoration. (Photo by Masatsugu Yokoyama; story on page 1.)
(story on ENDURING TRADITIONS)
Aichi Prefecture is located roughly in the middle of the Japanese archipelago and is the nation's top industrial prefecture, being the home of Toyota Motor Corp. and other leading-edge manufacturers. It also has a rich history and cultural tradition that continue to enrich the lives of residents today. A number of large-scale projects are planned to lead the prefecture into the twenty-first century, including the 2005 World Exposition and a new international airport.

AICHI VOICE is a colorful English-language publication issued twice a year in the spring and fall by the Aichi International Association, a nonprofit organization established by the Aichi Prefectureal government, to introduce Aichi's proud traditions and latest trends to a worldwide audience.

This Website contains the magazine's contents in electronic form to give everyone with Internet access a chance to learn more about our prefecture.
