Naha's Tsuboya district has been a center for Okinawan pottery since the era of the Ryukyu Kingdom, and many pottery workshops are still concentrated in the area today. The Tsuboya Pottery Museum illustrates the history and the techniques of Tsuboya pottery.


The Tsuboya Pottery District is located about 400 meters south of Kokusaidori Street in central Naha. One end of the district is located at the end of the Heiwadori shopping arcade, which begins on Kokusaidori. The other end of the district can be reached in a ten minute walk from Asato Station along the Okinawa Monorail.
