The Hongo campus of the University of Tokyo is where the residence of the Maeda clan, lords of Kaga domain in present-day Ishikawa prefecture, existed in the Edo period (1603–1868). During excavations, various ceramic vessels from around the world – mainly ones from Japan, Qing-dynasty China, and Korea’s Joseon dynasty, as well as those made in Europe and West Asia – have been unearthed from this residence.
