I really appreciated the availability of the iPad tour and used it to learn more about the items on display and the culture and processes of pottery making. It made a good facility a great experience.

Located near the beginning of the long pottery street. Nice overview and history of pottery in Okinawa.

Free language audio guide as the exhibits are 95% no english

There is not just one kind of traditional Okinawan pottery. There are, in fact, many different kinds. The Tsuboya Pottery Museum shows visitors the "full range" of traditional pottery in Okinawa. I thought the most impressive pieces were the large cremation urns which are uniquely shaped and decorated. I have never seen anything else quite like them on mainland Japan or anywhere else. I was also impressed with the "marine life" motif that I saw on much of the museum's pottery. The depictions of various marine animals were accurate and original. The museum is on the small side. I honestly felt that more pottery could have been exhibited. In addition, there was no information in English. This was a bit disappointing. In general, though, I liked the Tsuboya Pottery Museum. I'm glad I went there.

This is a lovely quaint street with a museum at the beginning. Not far from International street. You can buy all sorts of pottery here including the famous Okinawan Shisa Dogs. You will see them in abundance in Okinawa and especially along Pottery Street and in the museum. Shisa Dogs spiritually protect the properties.

Closest Yui Rail (mono rail) station is Makishi and Asato.

It's a small museum but interesting to learn about Okinawan pottery. Learn the difference between ara-yachi and Jo-yachi. The former includes water jars and other large items coated with mud, while the latter consists of everyday crockery, such as bowls and plates. You even get to feel the difference between the two types of pottery. Be sure to get the free audio guide from the receptionist.

Travel to this lovely museum and you'll be in the midst of tiny pottery studios and shops. The museum is fairly inexpensive to get into, most of the displays are entirely in Japanese. There is an English brochure and some history of the area in English as well. This is a really gorgeous and quaint area, tiny cafe's and traditional Okinawan cuisine. I have two boys ages 3 and 5, it was a little difficult (hint hint) to take them into the small shops with stacked pottery, and they found the museum boring.

The museum will only take a half hour or so but it goes through the history of the making of the different kinds of pottery produced in Okinawa.
