Yachimun Street

Yachimun Street Yachimun Street Yachimun Street

Okinawa pottery or “yachimun” has a history of more than 400 years, and is known for its high quality and distinctive style. In Naha, tourists flock to Tsuboya, the quaint cobble-stoned street which is the birthplace of tsuboya-yaki pottery. Yomitan in the central part of the island is another mecca of yachimun, and the ruins of the oldest kiln on the island are found there. Annual pottery festivals have become popular, with the Yomitan event held the third weekend of October, and the Tsuboya event held in November. Both draw locals and visitors alike, keen to own a beautiful handmade work of art.
