Japanese Folk Crafts in [nid].Wednesday, 4 November 2009
Each Japanese prefecture (there are 47) has its special folk crafts and I've been enjoying to collect little bit of each when I visit different places in Japan. Kurashiki in Okayama prefecture is the next destination I'd love to visit for the beautiful Kurashiki glasswares!
In the [nid] website they have an online shop and you can buy some of the items that are seen in the magazine which is wonderful! These are some of my favourites:
"Onta-yaki" (小鹿田焼) from Oita prefecture, "Enkoji-gama" (延興寺窯) from Tottori prefecture.
Wooden potholders and coasters from Asahikawa, Hokkaido.
