Tsuboya Yachimun Street壺屋やちむん通り

Street

Tsuboya Yachimun Street is located near Kokusai dori Street. In the Okinawan dialect, “Yachimun” refers to pottery. It is said that about 330 years ago, the Ryukyu King gathered potters to Tsuboya in Naha from various places and this was the beginnings of Tsuboya pottery. Strong traces of the past linger on this road with its stone paving, stone walls and its buildings with red tile roofs, potters with inherited techniques, from Yachimun pottery and Okinawan lion statue stores and restaurants standing side by side in a row.

Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You've arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan's most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
