Yachimun Street, Naha

3.8
#2 of 14 in Neighborhoods in Kyushu-Okinawa
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.

  • It is the taste of Okinawa in the residential area of the old atmosphere area. This is useful so you can continue from. Severe slope in the back.

  • Yachimun (pottery) got the street atmosphere attracts about 10 shops. Shop by personality felt modern Orthodox design fashioned from a modern twist to it is fun just to see. Nice try before buying the cafe's in the shop.
