Yachi mun Ichi (やちむん市)

Yomitan village is famous for Yachi-mun (pottery).

2 or 3 times per year We have Yachi-mun Ichi (Pottery bazaar).
Pottery shops around Yomitan gather and sell their pottery. You can find some discount pottery and expensive ones.

Each artist has different design and color.
Big benefit of this bazaar is you can see each pottery design together. You don't need to drive each shop separately.
We can find favorite one, and when my friends visit Okinawa, we can take them to this shop directly.

Here is pottery center in yomitan.
