Yonekoyaki Craft Center (米子焼工房)

4.5

Souvenirs

Yonekoyaki Craft Center is a craft workshop located right next to Yonehara Beach on Ishigaki Island. The Center can be recognized by the huge Shisa (Okinawan lion-dogs) at the entrance. Within the Center grounds there are ponds and a stream, with colorful, characterful art-works scattered around. Inside the Center, a wide range of unique, colorful miniature Shisa statues are on sale, varying in size from Shisa so small that they will fit in the palm of your hand, to larger statues around 30 centimeters high; these make ideal souvenir gifts.

Our tour guide recommended my kids will love this place and took us here. He was 100% right about it. My kids were totally captivated by the colorful statues which keep us safe from the devil. Haha

If you want a surprise and to see lots of massive Shisa statues, stop by here. Its really close to Yonehara Beach and we spent about an hour walking around the grounds (which are free but I would...
Reviewed:2019/01/28 Road pass this place and it looked like a lot of art is to be seen there.
If you like art, this is the place to visit. I just rode by the front and it looked fantastic to visit. I was on my way from the airport to the hotel so I didnt stop.

          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.
