A pottery workshop which was once operated by Sakaida Kakiemon, a renowned potter from Arita Town in Saga Prefecture.

The workshop’s pieces began being exported around the world starting in the Edo period and remain popular to this day. The workshop is adjoined by a museum where visitors can learn about its 380 year history and view actual pieces from various time periods.

          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.
