A tour of the kilns that trace the history of "Sarayama,"
the birthplace of Koishiwara-pottery.


This is a course that traces the history of Koishiwara, focusing on historical sites and kilns in the Sarayama district, the birthplace of Koishiwara pottery. The Sarayama district, which is said to be the sacred place of Koishiwara pottery, still retains nostalgic scenery such as the power spot "Gyoja-sugi" (cedar tree), "Karausu" (Chinese mortar), thatched roof houses and stone pavement.
