Boasting a history going back 1,000 years, Imbe is the hometown of Bizen pottery, one of Japan’s oldest forms of pottery, and features more than 100 potteries and galleries. The old townscape of Imbe is a one-of-a-kind sight filled with buildings made with red brick chimneys and Bizen pottery roof tiles. At the Bizen Pottery Museum, visitors can experience the charm of Bizen pottery not only by learning how to make Bizen pottery but also by viewing about 250 masterworks ranging from modern pottery to pottery crafted in ancient times. Imbe Station also has Bizen pottery on display and for sale.
