  • TRADITIONAL CRAFTS

Arita (Saga Prefecture), the home of Japanese porcelain, celebrated its 400th anniversary of porcelain production in 2016. While the kilns of the area are now mostly idle, the town itself still retains the architecture and layout of its Edo-era prime. In the surrounding countryside, there are excellent nature spots which make Arita a highly recommended location to visit.
