Tucked into the back alleys of old-style Kagurazaka, YouLuck shines bright as a beacon of art and culture in the Tokyo suburbs. Even among pottery shops YouLuck is unique in that it offers an amazingly wide variety of pottery styles such as Bizen, Shigaraki, Oribe and Karatsu, with pieces shipped in from all corners of Japan. For this reason, the shop not only offers authentic pieces, but also pieces that highlight the beauty and culture of Japan.
This is the perfect place for tourists and travelers to pick up that something special to remember their trip by. Pottery is a special gift as it can help invoke the wonderful memories made in Japan for even years after returning home. YouLuck offers delivery services as well, so there is no worry of precious pieces getting broken on the way back to the hotel, and no worry of having to carry them around town all day.
For those currently living in Japan, pottery makes an excellent gift for loved ones abroad as they can experience the unique culture of Japan through its artwork even when they can’t visit in person. Pottery sets can also be excellent as wedding or anniversary gifts, as they are both practical and beautiful for couples both young and old. With plates big to small, and everything in between, including sake cups, mugs, vases and more, when looking for that special something YouLuck has it all.
