Go Treasure Hunting in a Porcelain Warehouse

Handicrafts Pottery Souvenirs Saga

The Kouraku Kiln was founded in 1865 in the town of Arita, Saga Prefecture, and has been producing ceramics for the past 150 years. Over that time, the facility has accumulated a vast collection of pottery that has, for one reason or another, gone unsold. The warehouse is so vast that some workers use a bicycle to get from one side to the other.

The production facility is now inviting visitors on a “treasure hunt” to try and get rid of some of its stock. For ¥5,000, shoppers can reserve a day to enter the shop and gather as many products as they can fit in their baskets!

To learn how you can take part in this awesome shopping spree (and how you can pay more for access to the premium section), visit Spoon & Tamago below!
