Every year in November or December Yakimono matsuri, the local pottery festival, takes place. This is a not to be missed event, if you’re searching for a unique Christmas gift, souvenir or to treat yourself (which we all have to do once in a while, agree?). This large pottery event is organised by the local Yaeyama potters. Even a Yonaguni potter is there to sell his handmade work and they all offer their products against reduced prices.
Meet local craftsmen/women and their wonderful handmade work. This years theme is: Shisa (the guardians of the house)
