Saga Prefecture is also famous as a production area for pottery, so there are about 180 products in addition to cosmetics, including ceramics such as Imari Arita ware, Karatsu ware, and Takeo ware, as well as Ogi Yokan, Ureshino tea, and local dolls.

・About Saga Prefecture
Two seas with different expressions.
A vast, fertile plain that yields abundant crops.
To the north is the Genkai Sea, one of Japan's leading fishing grounds, and to the south is the Ariake Sea, which boasts one of the world's largest tidal ranges, and the fertile Saga plains adjacent to it.
Karatsu, Imari, and Arita have long been known as ceramic production areas, and Ureshino City, which has Ureshino Onsen, which is counted as one of Japan's top three hot springs for beautiful skin, is also famous as a tea production area.
The pride of Saga Prefecture is the traditional skills and sophistication of the creators, who have continued to challenge new things while still preserving what they have pursued and inherited since ancient times.
