SAGA PREFECTURE

Widely known for its traditional ceramics and pretty coast, Saga is a small prefecture located between the more crowded areas of Nagasaki and Fukuoka. The pretty pottery town of Arita is a good port of call to experience the craft heritage of the area, through visits to its large prefectural museum, abandoned quarries, and traditional shops, which offer a great chance to purchase local wares. The scenic, small town of Ureshino is home to traditional pottery, hot springs and locally produced tea.
