I love Yomitan Pottery village. But then, I love bowls so it may not be to everyone's taste. There are many potters and many shops here and at least two rising wood-fired kilns (which I would love to see in action). A first visit might...More

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

A lot of the pottery looked the same from shop to shop as noted by other reviewers. However, there were a handful with unique work that I ended up buying for gifts (all closer to the parking except one that is hidden off the road)....More
