I went to Mashiko Ceramic Market last Saturday. Mashiko is a small town that is very famous for ceramics wears 'Mashiko-yaki' , and a big market is held twice a year on May and November.
Mashiko is only two hours by car from Tokyo, so many many people gather there every time.
I heard more than 350,000 people in 5 days this time!
Many people from foreign countries also were enjoying the market. ^-^
I love Mashiko very much.... full of beautiful natures, scenary unchanged since olden times, delicious food, and of course wonderful ceramics...
Mashiko town's site is here.
