Mashiko Town Tourism and Commerce Division
Welcome to Mashiko, the city of history and pottery

Mashiko Town stretches gently in the southeastern part of Tochigi Prefecture, north of the Kanto Plain. This land, nurtured by the changing nature of the four seasons and gently rolling mountains, produces high-quality potter's clay, which is the raw material for pottery. When you wrap it in your palm, you can feel the warmth of the earth, and it has become known not only in Japan but also overseas as ``Mashiko ware''. Another major attraction is the enterprising character of the area, which has long been a base for the folk art movement and has welcomed potters from both Japan and abroad. You will be able to experience the depth of Mashiko every time you come into contact with its long-cultivated history, culture, and rich nature.
