Beautiful shops with hand made pottery but quite pricey. I bought a few items from Yacchi & Moon and they seem to be a very popular shop. Great location as it's just behind the Hyatt.

I went here on a very hot day, so ducking into each shop with air conditioning was a nice bonus! The owners are all very friendly and I was able to chat with each of them in a bit of Japanese. The prices vary in each shop, so it's best to do window shopping first, then come back and buy... More

The pottery street where many pottery shops and the museum is. The shops are ok if you fancy simple pottery souvenirs but kind of hard if you're not a connoisseur . I don't know what is considered good or bad design or quality

We visited the area based on the reviews and thought they were a fair assessment. The museum is in the same area and I enjoyed that as well. My daughter got a great deal on a set of shi shi dogs, even better pricing than those found on Kokusai street. We also got to talk to a local artisan while... More

Same pottery that's available in the Yomitan Pottery Village, but it's marked up about 500%. Just go straight to the source in Yomitan if you have the time. But on the plus side, it's a pretty street to walk on.

Of course you can find a dish of pottery, also you can find here specially is a Shisa, Okinawa's famous decoration resembling a cross between a lion and a dog. Each pottery sells unique Shisa so you can find your favorite Shisa to get for a souvenir. It is good to stroll the quiet street. A cafe I found sells... More

A pleasant walk along pottery street with shops and alleyways branching off selling the potters hard earned work. Close to the monorail. It is not very well signposted but if you get lost and think you are close and you are in a residential street with pottery shops then you are in the right area. There is a bridge and... More

There are several major Asian cities with absolutely stunning craftsmanship and traditional design, which is a lot more fun to buy (and lasts longer) than the usual tourist tat. Most cities in Japan fit this bill, as does Seoul (if you know where to look), Luang Prabang, Siam Reap, Galle, Taipei, etc. Okinawa Prefecture is one of my favorite places... More

Lovely way to explore Okinawa by visiting this pottery street. As we stayed at Hyatt, the street is just a stone's throw away. All the houses/shops here are traditional and really beautiful in an untouched way. We didn't buy anything as pottery is fragile and heavy. You can find small plates, spoons etc for a very good price here. Good... More

Allow about 3hrs to investigate this street. Only found one Artisan at the Hyatt end of the street but there were quite workshops closed. Remember, pottery weighs a lot so unless you have a large luggage weight allowance, buy small individual items. Siusiu lions (dogs) are mass produced but they are very Okinawan so they are a good place to... More
