The urn specialty store "Taka-esu" is on Tsuboya Yachimun Street, in central Naha City, Okinawa prefecture. Yachimun means pottery in the Okinawan dialect. Tsuboya Yachimun Street has a concentration of pottery shops and galleries dealing in Tsuboya ware, which is a unique Okinawan style of pottery.

Taka-esu is a specialty store carrying urns in varying sizes from big to small. In addition to urns, there are other specialty types of pottery. Why don't you try to find a special piece that catches your eye?

Just nearby is the Naha City Tsuboya Pottery Museum. If you visit the museum in the same trip that you visit this store, you'll go home with a fuller understanding of the history and features of Okinawan pottery culture.
