Yonekoyaki Craft Center米子焼工房


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.

Uniquely Okinawa. Interesting. Peaceful. Great photo spot. Shouldn’t take more than half hour to walk through the whole park so worth a quick stop.

          Okinawa Main Areas


          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.
