Tsuboya Yachimun Street

壺屋やちむん通り Tsuboya Yachimun Street

A quiet, stone-paved street around a 10 minute walk from Heiwa Street or Ichiba Hondori Street (both accessible from Kokusai Street). This street is the birthplace of Tsuboya ware, which is renowned as a traditional craft in Okinawa. Today, it is still dotted with many potters’ workshops, and there are a number of pottery shops and galleries on the street. Venturing into one of the many side alleys, visitors may be able to see craftsmen turning potters’ wheels and making pottery. Why not enjoy shopping and taking a walk in this artistic area.
