Yachimun no Sato, Yomitan-son

(4/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Almost most of think people come by car, but went with the bus from Naha. Could not access is worse than I thought. A little quiet in the village, is lonely. That may be just had lunch. Guide said you want, or if you'd rather, I think will be impossible.

  • Interesting to see the potters and glass workers at work. Good for an hour or so, but probably not the place for young children.  more »
