Koka, & Shigaraki
Shigaraki, located in Koka City, Shiga Prefecture, is widely known as a pottery town where pottery making has been flourishing since ancient times. The Shigaraki Pottery Village has been established in honor of this. Visitors can try their hand at pottery makings, such as tanuki (Japanese raccoon dog) making and lantern making, and take a break in a café converted from a climbing kiln. In addition, there is “Hakusan Shrine,” the guardian shrine of Chiyoujuji Temple, “Tamura Shrine,” known as a shrine to ward off bad luck, and “MIHOMUSEUM,” with its fantastic cherry-red tunnel in the morning. A wide range of tourist attractions, from sacred places to photogenic spots, will entertain you.
