Arita Porcelain Park

A taste of Germany in Saga Prefecture

By Mandy Bartok   Jul 27, 2015 - 1 min read

The Arita Porcelain Park gives visitors to Saga a small taste of Germany with its European-themed architecture and its on-site beer factory. The main site within this pseudo theme park is a recreation of the Zwinger Palace from Dresden, another city noted for its production of fine porcelain. Plenty of opportunities exist to tour the attraction with one's tastebuds, including sake samples in the main park store and one of only five restaurants in town that offers the Arita-yaki Gozen set meal, featuring locally-raised chicken prepared in multiple ways. Visitors can also participate in a porcelain-making experience on-site for a small fee.
