Yokotaya kiln

Yokotaya kiln opened in 2002 by Minoru Chibana. This is a privately owned kiln, which is rare in Yachimun no Sato.

If you go through the narrow path in the forest, you will find five consecutive climbing kilns in the back of the wooden workshop. Over the course of six years, the whole family worked together to create a studio and kiln in an undeveloped area where bamboo grows thickly. Mr. Chibana trained at Omine Hosei Kiln in Yomitanzan together with the Matsuda brothers of Kitagama, and later became independent. It features bold patterns and colors.
