When people think of their dream Japanese vacation, and their beachy stays in Okinawa, it isn’t usually pottery that comes to mind. Even if it is, it might be something along the lines of the much more world famous ‘Kintsugi’ style from the mainland, which is the ancient Japanese style of repairing pottery with gold. That style embodies the ‘wabi sabi’ philosophy, or the impermanence of all things. Okinawan pottery, however, like so many other aspects of its culture, does things in its own way, resulting in something distinct and unique to the region. If you want to engage in an important part of Okinawa, you shouldn’t skip this artistic expression.
