各地の百貨店にもお店がある、香蘭社ふの本店が有田にあります。重要伝統的建造物群保存地区に指定されている、有田の町を代表する有田焼のお店。建物は洋風建物で、商品も見やすく買いやすい。2階には古陶磁器の展示もされています。お店の建物じたいも魅力があります。

          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.
