Okinawa Japan photography group featuring unique pictures of Okinawa
At the end of the 330-meter long Heiwa Street shopping arcade another world of Naha reveals its self: the pottery quarter Tsuboya, most often called Tsuboya Yachimun Street. Since the Ryukyu Administration gathered the many pottery kilns and artists that were spread out over Okinawa 300 years ago this quarter of Naha has been known as a pottery town.
This area in Naha is paved with Okinawa limestone and 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.
