Karatsu

3.8
The coastal city of Karatsu has long held importance for trade with China and the Korean Peninsula. Though it has a history of whaling, the city now profits primarily from its earthenware products, and trips to pottery studios rank highly on most trips to Karatsu. Acting as a gateway to the rural peninsula, the city provides a base for explorations of the natural attractions and remote historic sites, including the impressive coastline and ancient ruins hidden among the hills of the interior. Karatsu is in Saga Prefecture. Plan my Japan trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
