Tajimi City, Gifu Prefecture, lies in the Tono region in central Japan. It is surrounded by clay-rich mountains. At their feet flows the gentle Toki River, linking the city, its neighbourhoods and suburbs like beads on a string. The region is historically known as the Mino Province, the birthplace of Mino ware. It’s a ceramic tradition with roots in the ancient Kofun period, a time that saw the fall of the Western Roman Empire.

Do you have a curious nature and a sense of adventure? “Tajimirukomichi” is a program that will introduce you to the hospitality unique to this area. The locals of Tajimi - potters, tile makers, shopkeepers, community builders - will guide you through their towns and shops. You’ll feel it while walking through winding alleyways, discovering well-known, yet hard-to-find shops… See, touch, walk, taste… Take a small adventure in our city and discover it all!
