Japan has a variety of pottery and porcelain. On my dining table there are plates and bowls came from all over Japan.
In the beginning of May we have holidays called “the golden week”, and we had especially the long holiday this year because of celebration for Reiwa Tenno‘s accession to the throne.
During the holiday I traveled to Kyusyu island to visit the towns famous for fine pottery and porcelain, Arita, Imari, Hasami, and Karatsu.
Those towns held the Yakimono(pottery and pocelain) festival during the holiday where potters and companies hold the special market for visitors. You can look around shops and a variety of goods to find your favorite plates or cups or vases and so on.
I like Yakimono festival because you can meet a potter. If you know a potter who made your plates or cups, you can have an attachment to things you use every day.
In Saga, statues carved on rocks in Udono were very impressive.
I was very refreshed with the travel seeing a lot of beautiful things(^^)!
