The Gojo Tōki Matsuri – Your chance to find bargain pottery
Kyoto’s pottery is a treasured piece of Kyoto culture and known all around the world. The street in Kyoto known as Kiyomizuzaka, is where Japan’s famous Kiyomizu-yaki pottery originated and to this day is home to potters and their stores selling the traditional pottery.
Every year the “Tōki Matsuri” pottery fair is held from August 7 to 10 and opens from 9 AM to 10 PM.
With over 400 stalls being visited by nearly 400,00 people, the Tōki Matsuri is also Japan’s largest-scale pottery fair.
With pottery ranging from the traditional to those created with the younger generation in mind, this fair has an abundance of different pottery to enjoy.
This fair is only held once a year, so don’t miss the opportunity to head down and scour through the piles of historical Kyoto pottery to find something that’s just for you.
