Nice place to spend a few hours

If your kids are old enough & appreciate art, this is a good place to send kids for a pottery lesson.

Prepare to have your mind blown, very busy street. With lots and lots of vendors selling all kinds of things. It is a bit overwhelming.

Short street with a few shops selling pottery. Nothing else here. If you are pressed for time, don't bother. If you are in the area, just walk through. It joins Heiwadori shopping street and near all the other attractions anyway.

Beautiful shops with hand made pottery but quite pricey. I bought a few items from Yacchi & Moon and they seem to be a very popular shop. Great location as it's just behind the Hyatt.

I went here on a very hot day, so ducking into each shop with air conditioning was a nice bonus! The owners are all very friendly and I was able to chat with each of them in a bit of Japanese. The prices vary in each shop, so it's best to do window shopping first, then come back and buy... More

The pottery street where many pottery shops and the museum is. The shops are ok if you fancy simple pottery souvenirs but kind of hard if you're not a connoisseur . I don't know what is considered good or bad design or quality

We visited the area based on the reviews and thought they were a fair assessment. The museum is in the same area and I enjoyed that as well. My daughter got a great deal on a set of shi shi dogs, even better pricing than those found on Kokusai street. We also got to talk to a local artisan while... More

Same pottery that's available in the Yomitan Pottery Village, but it's marked up about 500%. Just go straight to the source in Yomitan if you have the time. But on the plus side, it's a pretty street to walk on.

Of course you can find a dish of pottery, also you can find here specially is a Shisa, Okinawa's famous decoration resembling a cross between a lion and a dog. Each pottery sells unique Shisa so you can find your favorite Shisa to get for a souvenir. It is good to stroll the quiet street. A cafe I found sells... More

A pleasant walk along pottery street with shops and alleyways branching off selling the potters hard earned work. Close to the monorail. It is not very well signposted but if you get lost and think you are close and you are in a residential street with pottery shops then you are in the right area. There is a bridge and... More
