We booked a one to one Shisa building with 育陶園 1 month ago for our 6-yr-old boy. He loved it! Great experience in this quiet place. Nice stroll along the street to Kokusaido afterwards.

Several times, I have gone here for photography trips. The shop owners and employees are always friendly and helpful. It's best to ask if you may take photos and, wait until the store isn't busy.

It was at first hard to find. We found it after 2 attempts because this street sits in a residential area and the streets aren't square blocks. Its a tranquil stroll through small privately run stores with different styles of pottery. Its very interesting to see the styles and compare the products. I liked the open front displays.
