Arita Ceramic Fair
- Arita Ceramic Fair
- Arita town, Saga prefecture
- The Arita Ceramic Fair is one of the representative ceramics and pottery festivals held during the Japanese Golden Week Holidays (a succession of holidays from April 29 to May 5). Every year from April 29 to May 5, ceramic enthusiasts from all over Japan gather in Arita, a ceramic village in the tranquil mountains, and the town instantly becomes bustling with visitors.
The Arita Ceramic Fair has roots in an old-time storehouse clearance sale, called Kura Zarae Ouridashi, which was held as a support event for a ceramic fair convened in 1915 (current Kyushu Yamaguchi Touji ten), although some records show that similar ceramic fairs were held even before the Kura Zarae Ouridashi.
