Description of this tour
Shigarakiyaki (or Shigaraki ware) is an ancient tradition of stoneware pottery made in Shiga Prefecture that survives and thrives to this day. This experience is a private tour of the Shigaraki area in Koka city where this tradition of pottery is still practiced and refined today. The highlight of the tour is a private visit of a potter's workshop. The artist will talk about his work and his philosophy in the context of Shigaraki's history and tradition and will answer any questions you may have.
I have been working as a tour guide for more than 20 years.
I would like to return the hospitality and the kindness that I received in the US while I lived there for two years.
I love meeting and being with guests from overseas. I would like to do my best in introducing Japanese culture and tradition to them.
