A museum with a broad range of exhibits on Okinawa’s pottery. Tsuboya has always been the leading force in the pottery scene of Okinawa, and the museum showcases exhibits introducing in detail its techniques and production process. The theater on the first floor shows films that recount the state of Tsuboya and how people lived and worked through the war.

Many people, not limited to ones in the pottery work, visit the shrine in the square to pray for Tsuboya and its continued development, among other things like health and wellbeing.
