Naha City Traditional Arts & Crafts Center

This municipal institution not only offers a textual and visual overview of traditional Okinawan arts and crafts—some of which date back several centuries—but also introduces visitors to famous skilled artisans ("Living National Treasures") and offers workshops in pottery (tsuboyaki), lacquerware, decorative glass and clothes dyeing. It’s best to book in advance for the workshops, but if you’re not feeling like getting hands-on, there are crafts made by others for sale.
