Experience Hall / Accommodation Experience (Training) Facility

At the southern foot of Mt. Chitose in Hirashimizu within Yamagata Prefecture's Yamagata City is “Hirashimizuyaki” pottery, which holds history passed down from the Edo period. There are over 300 artisan-made items on display and for sale. There are (paid) ceramics experience classes, and by crafting with a hand-cranked rokuro, or potter's wheel and doing their own painting, guests can create a truly unique piece. It is baked and shipped out after a month or so. Ceramics classes are open from 9 am-3 pm.

Yamagata Main Areas

around-area-map

Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
