Yachimun Street, Naha

(3.8/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • 位於國際通附近,由牧志站步行約十五分鐘,店家售賣各種傳統燒陶器及新款得意擺設,價錢合理,一隻斗笠大茶碗在港幣一二百元再右,貨真價實。而且商店街為了另顧客不會下雨淋濕,特別預備了傘子供逛街購物用,非常窩心。
