On my last week at the office, I got to go have one more cultural experience!
Yakimono = pottery or ceramics. I thought it was food at first (ie, yakitori=chicken so yakimono=”cooked stuff”? It’s spelled that way: 焼物。In the end, it’s true, though, right? You put the clay in an oven). I asked if I could take a few pictures afterword, and then my instructor actually gave me a short tour! I don’t have a lot to say about the actual experience, because it was over pretty fast, but I really liked the atmosphere of that place a lot. I liked how there were wooden shelves everywhere with lots of pottery on them, and how everything was made of wood or clay.
There are several rooms in the yakimono place. The table where we were making pottery was in the first room; the 1st & 3rd pics are in the second room; now on to the third room!
After making pottery, we sat down at our work table and had coffee with milk and sugar^^ Ahhh, I love it^^ I want to go backね～～
