A Local Perspective on Life in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

Yasato Pottery Festival

The 12th Yasato Pottery Festival is this weekend!
This one is a lot smaller than the one that was held in Kasama during the “Golden Week” holidays (see “Kasama Pottery Fair“), but at least you won’t have to deal with the chaotic traffic. Besides, this is your chance to meet the ceramic artists who live or have a studio in the Yasato area of Ishioka City!
