  • I had a super fun time "treasure hunting" for pottery. The staff had a several very friendly english speakers, which made it easy for learning the rules. You get a shopping basket (like the one at the grocery stores) to fill up with pottery for 5,000 yen or 10,000 yen, depending on which area in the building you shop in. I had a great time picking out pieces that probably would not sell in a fancy store, but were perfectly beautiful and functional for someone looking to buys some items as a tourist. They also helped me find some "monkey" motif items, because I loved working with them at a previous job of mine. I totally recommend this place, just be aware that is a ware house and the pieces can be quite dusty (but you just need to wash them off when you get home and it is fine).
  • If you are looking for pottery treasures in a big warhouse with old pottery then this is the correct spot to be. For 5,000 Yen you have 90 minutes time to find something new for your home. It's a lot of hard work, because you maybe need to dig deep. If you have childs they have a corner with books and other stuff.
