Yachimun no Sato, Yomitan-son

3.8
#2 of 6 in Shopping in Nakagami-gun
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.

  • From 12/15 2 days in a row I. Borrowed car at Naha on the first day, in the afternoon the second day arrived at noon. No parking place waiting on the day after the first team could stop the car in front of the Northern kilns. Was able to walk from a writer's cooperative Center North kiln before circling around, not in from writers who are looking for relax and take in the hands. From half of the market price at a price of about two-thirds and also the outlet often wonderful vessels, heart was dancing. Vessels on the first day did not first seen on day 2 and 3 days is not changed, and I want to walk. But to regret dating edge is more affordable in the good stuff there, and I think I might.

  • There are operated jointly by the many workshops, such as how to draw blood and treasure Kaneshiro Jiro's Studio workshop of climbing around. Parked your rental car parking lot and walk. People like porcelain and took plenty of time.

  • I like ceramics, and there are some beautiful examples on sale here, but the market is a bit overwhelming and prices are not much different than in town. Not the easiest place to reach.  more »

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.
