One of Japan’s three biggest ceramics festivals

The Toki Mino Yaki Matsuri, which happens on May 3, 4, and 5 of every year, is known as one of the three biggest ceramics festivals in all of Japan, and over 30,000 people from within Gifu prefecture and beyond come to Toki City to partake in the festivities each year.

The festival’s biggest attraction is that roughly 60 highly reputable ceramics makers set up stalls and offer their goods at the lowest prices you’ll find them at all year! If looking for a deal on incredibly high quality ceramics, this is the place to be!
Many other events are being held in the area during the festival, making it a great way to enjoy your vacation over Golden Week this May!
