    »Takahama Tile Art Museum

    This unusual museum is dedicated to the humble roofing tile, because of the industrial history of the city as a roofing tile producer. Although the subject may be unassuming, one of the more interesting aspects is the onigawara (ornamental tile pieces found on ridge ends and eaves of roofs) often shaped like the faces of ogres to serve as charms to ward off evil spirits and to protect the building. In addition to examples of tiles going back more than a millennium, there are also photographic exhibits of architecture from around the world that utilize the roofing tile.
