  • Is a small building, but quietly located. I think that little bit difficult to find. Audio description facilities to borrow free of charge. What I also saw the whole thing, just ask! Didn't have time so I we didn't have, around the shop and left the atmosphere of ancient narrow streets. People who like baking meal!.

  • Well unless you are very interested in pottery history of Ryukyu, you can spend your time elsewhere In fact it's worthwhile to spend time finding those real handmade pottery from nearby small shops as souvenir
  • Not suitable for foreigners
  • Not too much to see for the entry fee Decent place to spend half an hour inside to look at the history of pottery of Okinawa
  • Get the audio tour
  • Where the kiln was built originally and occupy spots 1-interesting, and some have been restored as an exhibit in and poking around. Tsuboya yachimun (pottery) I to ridicule as the catalyst in the history of the temper of the Okinawa that may come will. But free thought, I wonder if in many little exhibit some of that.
