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.

  • Yachimun (pottery) I like is my favorite here. That really is a little bit more good shops then-and will always buy, but I think it is going.

  • Not alone because personally I like pottery kiln and shop look like fun Naha Tsuboya Street and also feel the difference is interesting site, area for ceramics too paved a way to enjoy. Pottery no interest who might be boring place. Still should be seen climbing kiln for active duty
