Yachimun no Sato, Yomitan-son

3.8
#1 of 6 in Shopping in Yomitan-son
Visit the workshops of Yachimun no Sato, a community of craftspeople making kiln-fired pottery and glasswork. Strolling through the quaint purpose-made village--relocated here when smoke from the kilns became too disruptive in the main town--you'll see the local artisans at work, with many workshops and studios open to visitors. Admire the different stages of the artistic process as you move between the studios, with one potter spinning, another firing, and yet another painting or glazing. Visit the onsite store, where cups, saucers, bottles, vases, and ornaments offer a wealth of souvenir and gift ideas. Our Yomitan-son online travel planner makes visiting Yachimun no Sato and other Yomitan-son attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Yachimun (pottery) got in, the village itself is a strange space shown in the name of one village as has become, yachimun (pottery) it is a comfortable place as a different kind of loose and air flow. Around the building sometimes? Village itself is so broad is not so neat, take a peek at each workshop and favorites are. I looked at various writer's work gradually understood is my favorite. Personally I like 小橋川, Takashi's work.

  • I think it is not a tourist destination. I think think pottery to come some hobbies of people interested, and not so boring.
