Pottery shops in Toki 2008/9/24 23:26
Gifu
Hi, I'd like to visit some of the pottery shops in Toki City on 25th October but the website is very vague regarding the access and transport. Does anybody know if the different shops are accessible by public transport?

It depends on the location of the shops you will visit.

Generally speaking, public transport is relatively poor in suburban cities and you may have to rent a car.

The places I want to visit are listed on the following website http://www.chubu.meti.go.jp/sangyokanko/tokai_monozukuri1710...
and I thought that this town is a popular destination as they also have a premium outlet. As I don't drive, hiring a car is out of question... would getting a taxi be difficult (as being a foreigner)?
