A specialty shop on Sado, the island of ceramic arts and crafts

Tsubakiya Togeikan exhibits and sells about 1,000 items, including the works by a Living National Treasure native to Sado, created at sixteen different potteries within the island. Also on display are the works by Tamasaburo Bando, who is a Kabuki (traditional theatre plays) luminary and a Living National Treasure closely associated with Sado.
