It is the largest potter in town, and they allow visitors to observe the manufacturing process inside the factory and examine climbing kilns that were used in the past (designated as Tangible Cultural Properties by the town). There’s also a museum with pottery on display and materials on the history of the potter, as well as an adjoining sales area.

Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country's oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
