TSUBOYA YAKI (壺屋焼き) and KOSA YAKI (胡差焼)-Ceramics ofOkinawaPrefecture
Tsuboya-yaki is the traditional pottery of Okinawa. It is also refered to as Yachimun (やちむん). The most common motif is probably the carved fish. A friend of mine gave me a lovely Danchi-bin with the popular fish design on it. Kosa Yaki is made in Okinawa and is very similar. Depending on which town it is made in will determine what label is used.
