    Saga Pref. Takeoshi Takeochou Takeo 5327
    This towering camphor tree is on the grounds of Takeo-jinja Shrine in Saga Prefecture. Follow the small path from the main hall through the bamboo grove and you'll find it. The seventh largest tree in Japan, it's 30 meters tall, 20 meters in diameter, and the branches spread for over 30 meters. The trunk is hollow, and the inside covers about 20 square meters. It's said to be 3,000 years old, and it's paid special respect as the shrine's sacred tree. A Shinto god known as Tenjin is enshrined in the cavity.

    Visited Takeo onsen temple and came across this giant tree. Nothing too impressive honestly it just a tree. One would probably spend 5 minutes to take a photo before headed to another spot. Can omit...

  • Imari Nabeshima Pottery Gallery
    Travel / Tourism
    Saga Imari Okawachicho Otsu 1806
    "This pottery town showcases ""Nabeshima porcelain"". In 1675, the Nabeshima clan relocated a pottery kiln from Arita to Okawachiyama, and many kilns were created there. At the time, the technique of firing glazed porcelain in a high temperature kiln was kept secret, and for that reason, the Nabeshima feudal clan established checkpoints to strictly control the entrances and exits of Okawachiyama. Even today traces of the old town and checkpoints remain scattered around the city. Many potters still produce pottery and visitors can observe kilns and purchase ceramic wares."

    Saga Pref. Karatsushi Chinzeimachinagoya 3458

    車で波戸岬方向に名護屋城跡から走らせると右側に案内があるので以前から気にはなっていました。名護屋城跡の隣になり、名護屋城跡から徒歩でも行けると思いますが、ここにも別の駐車場があります。庭の散策だけなら無料、中で抹茶をいただくと有料ということのようです。抹茶をいただきながら庭を見ていると金沢の兼六園に行ったような感覚に少しなりました。

Saga Areas

Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu's Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
