Ashiyagama no Sato Village


The town of Ashiya earned national prominence as a maker of iron tea kettles for Japanese tea ceremonies, or “kama”, in the Muromachi Era (mid-14th century - late 16th century). Now, casters at Ashiyagama no Sato Village are hard at work trying to restore the production of such kettles in their studios.
Visitors to the village can find iron kettles from the Muromachi Era displayed in the museum or enjoy a drink of “matcha (Japanese green ceremonial tea)” while seated on chairs at a low table in the tea room or Japanese garden! The plum blossoms in February or azaleas in April and May are particularly beautiful.
