The Biggest Ceramics, Pottery & Porcelain Street Market Event in Japan - With Fireworks!
The Setomono Festival, held since 1932, sees the local pottery industry celebrating the legacy of Kato Tamikichi, hailed as “Father of Seto Pottery,”and who studied this art in Kyushu during the Edo period and brought it to the Seto region. Numerous events take place over the festival’s two days, and among them is Japan’s biggest "Seto Pottery Bargain Market," where prices are way lower than usual, drawing in several hundred thousand people from all over the country.
