This weekend will held various types of festivals and parades. Also Tsuboya Pottery Festival will held at Tsuboya Yachimun Street(Nov 3-6).

Yachimun pottery is a traditional craft of Okinawa developed under the influence of porcelain techniques from mainland Japan and neighboring Asian countries. Yachimun pottery is characterized by pleasant colors. It is greatly appreciated by young people in Okinawa and by people from mainland Japan, and is widely used for housewares. Tsuboya (Naha City) and Yachimun no Sato (Yomitan Village) are two places in Okinawa known for various pottery stores and studios.
