Hiryugama is a climbing kiln which was built in Kuromuta, Takeuchi-cho as a base of the pottery industry of Takeo and its cubic capacity boasts the world's largest scale. It consists of 4 pits, each of which has the depth of 8.9 meters, the width of 3.8 meters and the height of 3.4 meters; almost the size of a large bus. The length of the whole kiln is 23 meters, which allows it to burn about 120 thousand tea cups at the same time. You can also join a pottery making (pottery hand making) workshop at the adjoining factory. Every year around mid-March, an event where thousands of lanterns will be lit at the same time, is held here.
