Potters open their workshops and galleries with total hospitality

Potters from the city of Seto's Akazu, Shinano, and Mizuno areas open their workshops and galleries for a glimpse into what you cannot normally see during the Leisurely Autumn Kiln Tour with treasure hunts, pottery-making experiences (for a fee), and other fun events. The event was created of the desire for potters to speak directly with the customers using their vessels and create a stage for exchange.
