You can take the Naba monorail to Huwu Pottery Street. You can get off at Muzhi Station or Anli Station on foot. The two stations are located at two ends of this quiet walk path. If you choose to get off at Muzhi Station or just visit International Tong, you can go through Sakura Block and go straight to the Huwu Burning Museum, where Huwutong begins. This barbecue is not meant by barbecue in the food industry, but by pottery. In the Ryukyu era, pottery houses were populated by craftsmen specializing in the production of ceramics for the Ryukyu royal family and managed by specialized agencies. They can be said to be imperial craftsmen. Nowadays, there are many fresh and simple shops on the main road in this area. Most of them are rebuilt from the old local houses. If you wander carelessly, you will miss a small shop hidden in the city by a pottery master. You will be surprised and amazed all the way. The ingenious artistic model gadgets in the refreshing shop make people fond of it. They are eager to buy all the gadgets home. They like the bitter melon shelf of the shop best. They ingeniously combine the origin of Okinawa specialty with practicability. And those simple shops are anxious to let the kiln objects as simple as possible, embellishing some color on the rough surface, so that people can directly feel their original appearance. There are two pottery kilns at each end of the short pot house, one full of South Wind Kiln, which is a cultural relic protected by Okinawa County and used to produce ceramics specially for the imperial palace. There is also a lane to go deep into the path of the pothouse. The Xinyuan residence, also known as the Dongyao, is a designated cultural relic for protection in Japan. So don't miss the deep paths. You might as well go into the deep alleys and explore them. I went to the old-fashioned craftsmen who were making light pottery and asked me to come in and talk for a while. So go all the way to buy, just pothouse Tong can browse for most of the day, really pay attention to the reasonable arrangement of time, otherwise Okinawa is not enough to play for a few days.
Huwu block is not far from Pingtong and Tongtong. It is within walking distance. The Hut Museum is also here. There are many handicraft shops specializing in pottery, glassware and pottery, many of which are arranged in a very literary and artistic way. Many stores contain workshops, and the owner himself is a craftsman. It was rainy when we went, and it was very sensible to walk in this block. Small pieces are hundreds of yen, large pieces are tens of thousands of yen. You can't miss the freshness of literature and art.
Huwu is known as the home of Naba pottery, and the Huwu Burning Museum is a good place to learn about this pottery home. You can not only understand the history and making methods of Naba pottery, but also see many pottery objects and relic kilns. In addition, we can see from the audio data how people in the pothouse usually work and live. If you are interested, you can also rent a Chinese commentator. And a limited event such as a project exhibition can't be missed. In the neighboring "Pottery Street", there are various pottery art shops, workshops, galleries on both sides. They are of good quality and low price, and they can still find out some good things.
The historical origin of this area dates back to the 18th century. At that time, Okinawa was full of craftsmen and ceramic kilns. Immediately, the Ryukyu government decided to centralize Naha's industry. Most of the pottery workshops were moved to Dugu Village in central Okinawa, leaving a small part of the pot house open. The soil here is very good.
The local characteristics and beautiful environment are worth visiting.
The production of pottery is more sophisticated and exquisite.
I like Japanese ceramics very much... Simple and generous is very beautiful.
