Okawachiyama of Imari City was once under the complete control of the Nabeshima clan, and on this mountain stood the clan kiln (hanyo) where masterpieces such as Iro-nabeshima, Nabeshima sometsuke, and Nabeshima celadon porcelain were created. Three sides of this village are surrounded by mountains, and the distinctive scenery, reminiscent of a landscape painting, is truly that of the “Village of the Secret Kiln.”
Within Okawachiyama is Nabeshima Hanyo Park, where the checkpoint station that protected the secrets of the porcelain, climbing kilns such as the Sutra Stone Kiln (Okyo Ishi Kama) and Kiyohara Kiln, and potters’ homes have been beautifully reproduced.
