Чем вы займетесь
We’ll start the tour at a 150 year old pottery workshop, one of the only two remaining artisan kilns in the village. Because the raw materials (taken from the neighboring mountain) have certain unique characteristics, the molding method is also somewhat different from conventional pottery. But we'll show you everything you need to know to make a beautiful souvenir, be it a dish, bowl, or your own personal sake cup! (Note that your item will take 1-2 months to complete, but we can ship it to you for an additional cost.) After the class, we’ll take a quick tour of the facility and shop, followed by a walk around the Heisenji Temple grounds. Finally, we'll move to a beautiful sake boutique run by the same family, where the owner has brewed sake for many years, and now develops unique small-batch varieties, which you'll get to taste. You'll also learn how ceramics can effect and enhance the flavor of sake. All natural, locally produced drinking snacks will also be provided. For non-alcohol drinkers, local natural juices will also be served. Please note that if you can't find a time on the calendar that fits your schedule, please contact me, and I may be able to accommodate you.

Originally from America, I have lived in Yamagata, Japan for two years, and am a member inbound travel company, The Hidden Japan. The Hidden Japan is dedicated to revealing the treasures of Yamagata to visitors from abroad. Living here, I've become the English-speaking resident expert in "meibutsu", or regional crafts. On this tour I'll introduce you to the picturesque little pottery village of Hirashimizu, where I'll show you how to make traditional pottery at a 150-year old kiln. Afterwards, we'll try a few of the best locally-brewed sakes at the shop next door.
Где вы побываете
Hirashizmizu is an ancient pottery village surrounded by nature, and today, home to a number of traditional craftspeople. The ceramics kiln resides in an ancient kura (traditional Japanese storehouse), which we will also get to tour. Up the street, the sake shop not only has a great curation of sakes, but also carries a variety of locally produced drinking snacks. Heisenji Temple is home to a massive weeping cherry tree, which we can also visit.
