Kutaniyaki Porcelain Festival

This Festival is held every year as a memorial to the founders of Kutaniyaki: Kutani Shoza and Dokai Saida. It first started in the Meiji Period where about 70 manufacturers of Kutaniyaki Porcelain joined their shops together for the Festival, and since the beginning of Showa Period, the Festival became more and more famous and popular for having clearance sales and bargains on many Kutaniyaki Porcelains. Nowadays more than 300,000 porcelain and pottery fans will come every year from all over Japan to attend the Festival, and during this time the town will be filled with excitement and joy. The tents and stalls are all packed with many porcelains and potteries; you can get great deals on any items from 100 JPY accessories to 1,000,000 JPY huge Japanese pots.
