Okinawan Pottery and Food from Hokkaido at Alivila Bazaar

By: Kenny Ehman

Date Posted: 1999-10-23

Yomitan's beautiful Alivila Resort will be hosting its annual Bazaar featuring pottery from Yomitan and food from Hokkaido on October 30 and 31. This year over 15 of Yomitan's best potters will be selling their wares at prices discounted from 10% up to 50% off. This is a great chance to pick up one of Okinawa's best loved traditional crafts, while enjoying a day filled with great food and local entertainment.

The history of Okinawan pottery dates back to the days of the Ryukyu Kingdom. In many parts of the island the tradition carries on today, resulting in beautiful hand made vases, cups, and other items. Yomitan has become a haven for many of Okinawa's young and talented potters, blending tradition with original designs, and Alivila Resort offers the perfect opportunity to both view and purchase many fine pieces during its bazaar.

While browsing around, one can take a break and grab a bite to eat at any one of the stalls selling food prepared by the chefs of Alivila Resort. Local snacks such as Okinawa soba and Yomitan potatoes will also be on sale.

Big fans of seafood might also want to pick up some frozen crab legs or salmon, both of which have been brought straight from Hokkaido - Japan's northernmost island, famous for its bountiful sea and fertile farms. Plenty of Hokkaido produce will also be available; sweet corn, apples, and melon are just some of the delicious fruits and vegetable that will be available.

People can bring their whole families to this event. A "shi shi" lion dance, martial arts exhibit, and a magic show will be taking place throughout both day. Fireworks are also scheduled for 8 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

To get there, turn onto Route 6 off of Highway 58, heading for Torii Station. After passing Torii Station on your left, look for the Kanehide Supermarket. Stay to your left and follow the signs for the Alivila Resort.
