Yachimun no Sato, Yomitan-son

3.9
#3 of 31 in Things to do 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. Put Yachimun no Sato and other Yomitan-son attractions into our Yomitan-son vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

Where to stay in Yomitan-son

Many visitors to Yomitan-son are exclusively interested in its coastline, so developers have largely pandered to such wishes. You'll find a number of resorts, either on the coast directly west of the town center, or north and south along the shoreline. Looking out across beaches and with ample grounds for pools, restaurants, and the like, they represent the luxury options in town. Head inland a little and you'll find some more humble offerings, including guesthouses and simpler hotels.
