Yachimun Street, Naha

(3.8/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Instead of all the neon and modern Japanese style, Yachimun Street offers something completely different: a limestone-paved road full of ceramic studios, stores, and galleries. The street came to prominence 300 years ago, when the Ryukyu administration decided to gather all the potters in one place for a singular purpose--to produce ceramic jars. As you explore the calm neighborhood, visit the onsite pottery museum to learn about the history of this area. Observe local artisans as they pay homage to their heritage and make works of art on a daily basis. If you love the craft, you can also join the pottery-making classes to hone your skills with professional guidance. Use our Naha tour planner to visit Yachimun Street on your trip to Naha, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • 很有意思的一个区域,可以串成小线路,有的看风景,一路美丽,有的看历史和博物馆,有废弃的古窑,还有买,陶瓷一条路,虽然工艺比较粗糙,工艺也比较原始,但是日本非常崇尚手作和独创,每家店都有自己的心水物品,价格虽然不便宜,但看到好的却是独一无二,值得下手,非常有趣。  more »

  • International Street into the back streets. He and lined with pretty baking shop. Cheap just to see different face each and every pottery is not so fun. Any store clerk was friendly. Tightly packing, so takeout is safe. I hope that there are more cafes!
