Our tour was conducted by the owner of the Pottery Kiln. He is from a long line of potters and spoke very clear English. He threw several pots from raw clay including a rice bowl and a sake pitcher. This is a very informative demonstration

Our family of four with two teenagers greatly enjoyed your and pottery painting workshop. They ship your kilned pieces back to USA in ~2 months. Good English spoken, super friendly.
