The birthplace of Imari ware boasting a 400-year-old history

View Gallery
The manufacturing of porcelain began around the year 1600, and before long, kilns by the Saga Nabeshima clan were constructed so that they could create Nabeshima ware to be offered especially for the Shogun and his daimyo (feudal lords). About 30 pottery workshops are located within this village surrounded by the lush green mountainside which creates a unique atmosphere. Annually from mid-June to August, the Fuurin (Wind Chime) Festival is held, and throughout the village, you can view the scene of hanging Imari wind chimes which are beautiful to the eyes and ears.
