This pottery, which specializes in Okinawa’s representative Yachimun-style pottery, fires its creations in a traditional “Noborigama” ascending kiln, which is very rare nowadays. It fashions many different items using this traditional method, including sake jars for holding awamori (millet brandy). It also hosts pottery classes in its workshop to spread the appeal of Yachimun, allowing visitors the chance to make plates, cups, handmade shisa (Okinawan lions), and more. Visitors can also observe the creation process.

Reviewed:2019/05/19 カフェも併設
工場見学や陶芸体験ができる他、やちむんカフェ群青が併設されていて食事も楽しむことができます。読谷のやちむんの里の側ですが少し距離があるので車で移動が必要。

壺屋焼 陶眞窯、どうしても行きたかった窯元です。こちらでは体験も出来るようでしたが、時間がなかったので諦めました。色々丁寧に説明していただき、一層沖縄の文化に興味がわきました。
Reviewed:2017/04/01 やちむんの里
読谷村のやちむんの里にある壺屋焼の窯元。素朴な個人の窯元ですが、素人でも、陶芸の体験が楽しめ、ていねいに指導していただけます。

          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.
