“Visitors who were interested in seeing how the craft works were made could watch Japanese master craftsmen at the Japanese Village, or ‘Fair Japan’.
“One of the most popular craftsmen actually in the Exhibition was Horikawa Kozan, a celebrated potter, whose works were treasured not only in the households of many noblemen, but also in the Imperial Palace itself. He was invited to demonstrate pottery-making and to repair priceless antiquities, some of which had been in the possession of British collectors for generations.”
