  • [Itinerary] 11:00 — Meet your guide at Arita Station; head for the Kyushu Ceramic Museum 11:10 — Visit the Kyushu Ceramic Museum 11:40 — Move to Yasuna 12:00 — Arrive at Yasuna - Welcome drink in the annex on arrival - Translation by your English-speaking guide about the restaurant's antiques collection - Move to the main hall for a six-course kaiseki meal, served with Arita porcelain tableware from the Edo period to the present - After lunch, shop for Arita ware in the antiques room 13:30 — Walk to Gen-emon Kiln 13:45 — Tour the Gen-emon Kiln in Kuromuta 15:00 — Drop-off at Arita Station or another location in Arita of your choice [Special Japanese Full Course with Arita ware] In this activity, you'll visit the Kyushu Ceramic Museum then have a special kaiseki (multi-course traditional Japanese fine dining) lunch by an experienced local chef. The meal will take you back to Arita ware's origin. The venue, Yasuna, is specially selected for its treasure trove of beautiful dishes. The kaiseki meal will use pieces of Arita ware, representing different styles and time periods — from the Edo period, to the Meiji era, to the present. Owned by an antiques dealer and collector, Yasuna is a virtual paradise for antique lovers. Countless unique pieces of Arita ware are displayed in the owner's private showroom. After the meal, you'll have time to look at and purchase these rare items. Accompanying you for the meal is a knowledgeable guide that will explain the tableware used, as well as the Arita ware on display. Relish and savor the cuisine, while appreciating the beauty of Arita porcelain. After lunch, you will tour Gen-emon Kiln, the maker of some of the unique tableware used during your meal. Enter the studio and see its artisans at work. On special occasions, you will also see the studio's wood-fire kiln. Collaborations featuring the finest cuisine and Arita porcelain are very rare, so this is a precious opportunity for an exquisite lunch in which you can enjoy both the food and Arita's masterpieces. [What is Arita Ware] Arita ware, Japan's finest type of porcelain, has captivated not only the Japanese, but also Westerners since the Edo period (1603–1867). The town of Arita — for which this porcelain was named — has produced countless masterpieces throughout the centuries. Exported to Europe by the Dutch East India Company, Arita ware became a status symbol for wealthy Europeans. [Note] - The required minimum number of people for a tour is two. - All children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian - Children aged 0–6 may accompany guests for free, but will not be served lunch Operated by Tabinowa Kyushu Co.,Ltd.
