Toki Minoyaki Festival 2013
Toki Minoyaki Festival is an annual event (May 3rd to 5th) held in Toki-City, Gifu Prefecture, and the 37th festival successfully finished under the beautiful warm weather. This festival was originally started as a wholesale market for public in order to bond the community with the ceramic manufacturers/salers. More than 30,0000 people come to join this event, not only from all parts of Japan, but also from foreign countries.
Miyake Ceramics has participated into this festival for more than 20 years selling western ceramic-ware, gift sets, and traditional handicrafts.
There are also more activities, such as street performances, pottery lessons, and Japanese food stands.
Toki Premium Outlet Shopping Mall is just 15 minutes drive from the place of the festival so more and more people enjoy their long holiday (called Golden Week in Japan) in Toki-City.
