    Tonbai walls are made from fireproof bricks used to build climbing kilns, disposable kiln tools, and pottery shards coated with red clay. A common sight along the lanes stretching from Arita's Giant Ginkgo Tree in Izumiyama to Arita Ceramic Art Museum in Odaru, they give the area the feel of a town dedicated to ceramics.

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.
