Tsuboya Yachimun Street


Leaving fashionable Kokusai Street and entering Heiwa Street, the atmosphere undergoes a sudden change and one can discover everyday Okinawa. At the end of the 330-meter long arcade another world unveils: the pottery quarter Tsuboya, commonly named Tsuboya Yachimun Street. Approximately 300 years ago, the Ryukyu Administration gathered in this quarter the many pottery kilns and artists that were spattered around Okinawa. Since this period, Tsuboya has been known as a pottery town. Paved with Ryukyu limestone, the main street is filled with about 20 ceramic art workshops, stores and galleries. Not only a shopping area, Tsuboya houses Naha City’s Tsuboya Pottery Museum, and with various ancient kilns and old time scenery, it is definitely a charming quarter to enjoy tasteful promenades.
