(Yomitan Village)

Zanpa ware is a traditional handicraft of Yomitan Village on the west coast of the central district of Okinawa Island. The name Zanpa comes from that of a scenic cape in the village. Zanpa ware is an earth ware, which is considered the oldest kind of pottery.

After the clay is molded, it is fired around 800℃ without glazing. Its simple and beautiful texture created by the mixture of brown, blue and white reminds us of the color of the sea. Today not only conventional Shisa or vases, items such as tea utensils and bows are also manufactured. Zanpa ware is now favored as articles of folk handicraft as well as beautiful daily commodities.
