Tsuboya Streets pottery museum doesn't look too impressive from the outside, but a good deal of thought has gone into presenting the history of pottery in this section of downtown Naha. There is an interesting video, with subtitles, to start the tour, and several floors of exhibits with explanations in English (not always a strength of Japanese museums). There is a progression of examples of the area's pottery from the early to contemporary, including burial caskets which reflect the mix of Chinese and Japanese culture that enlivens Okinawa generally. On the street in front of the museum is a head spinning range of pottery shops, and a few steps up the hill, reconstruction of a traditional potter's home and kiln that is still a work in progress (there are lots of pictures on the construction fence at the site).
