Yonekoyaki craft center

On the road to Yonehara beach, Yonekoyaki is a place where you can see and buy handmade Shisa. In Okinawa, Shisa (シーサー) are lions protecting the houses. You can see them either at the entrance, either on the roof of a house. There are usually two of them, the male and the female. Shisa look a bit different than the lions from Taïwan or China.

At Yonekoyaki you will be able to have a walk in a large park where a lot of cement made Shisas have been made. There is also the shop where you can see/buy home made Shisa.
