Arts&Crafts Studio Shinpachino (屋久島焼 新八野窯)
This pottery studio is located in Hirauchi, a community on southern Yakushima Island best known for Hirauchi Kaichu Onsen. It produces works colored in stunning blues and greens using an original technique in which the pottery is fired together with coral collected from the sea. The glassy surface is created by coral ash that falls on the pottery in the kiln. This style, which was developed through much trial and error, is characterized by works that brighten up life with vivid natural colors. The studio also offers pottery classes in which participants can create an original work of pottery and finish it with their choice of one of 15 original glazes.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
