Our tour was conducted by the owner of the Pottery Kiln. He is from a long line of potters and spoke very clear English. He threw several pots from raw clay including a rice bowl and a sake pitcher. This is a very informative demonstration

This is an interesting pottery studio and gallery. This kiln dates back to 1870 and the tour was led by a potter who is the 6th generation in the family business. Interesting and beautiful work on sale for all price ranges (artwork to practical pieces).
