FESTIVAL OF Bizen Pottery
Period: October 15 days and 16 days
Organizer: Okayama Prefecture Bizen Ibe
This one-of-a-kind pottery makes a great souvenir!
Bizen pottery is one of the most famous types of Japanese pottery boasting a history that stretches back a millennium. Taking advantage of the inherent warmth of the soil, Bizen pottery doesn’t employ ornate coloring or painting, instead using only natural patterns created by the flame for a beautiful warmth. Because the shape and character of each product is different, every Bizen ceramic is different, making the selection of which to buy the best part of the journey. Bizen pottery can be purchased in souvenir shops at local airports and train stations.
