Overview

Rather than just visiting Kiyomizu-dera, one of Kyoto’s most popular temples, make contact with traditional Japanese culture during a ceramics session. You’ll learn about the centuries-old craft of kiyomizu-yaki (pottery making), and use an electric potter’s wheel to shape your own original, handmade cup. Plus, the option to ship your souvenir to your home country removes the hassle of transporting fragile goods. 
  • Learn the art of kiyomizu-yaki while you create your own cup on a potter’s wheel
  • Get hands-on tips from skilled artisans who finish and fire your creation
  • Conveniently located at Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto
  • Ideal for beginners or those with more experience

    Pottery Wheel experience in Kiyuomizu Kyoto
    pschon2000
    , Nov 2019
    Highly recommend this pottery class for multi-generational families to experience together. It was simple to set up the appointment and payment. Prior to the day of the class a reminder was sent. Communication between participants and staff was easy since the main instructor was fluent in English. This is an ideal way to take a break from walking, sightseeing and shopping and make a cup in a beautifully renovated studio that blends modern with Japanese style. The kawaii (cute) Japanese work top and apron provided kept your street clothes clean and provided a nice prop for pictures. My grandkids puts this on their top three favorite experiences from their first trip to Japan. My husband enjoyed it so much he is looking into pottery classes here at home. Our family highly recommends this class or similar ones to not only enrich your memories of your time in Japan but after you get home your completed creations will arrive and provide you with a tangible souvenir that was made by you!

    This venue does not exist. We walked around for nearly an hour and could not find it. Officials at the location told us they had never heard of the class and told us it was a scam. We requested a refund and were denied. Do not waste your money on this scam.
