“Awa indigo” is an indispensable part of Tokushima’s modern history.
In the Meiji and Taisho periods,
many wealthy merchants flourished, and they were also responsible for introducing the “Awa Odori” dance, which is now known all over the world.
Otani earthenware, which was used as a jar, developed along with Awa indigo.
Within a few minutes’ walk from the brewery, there are several Otani pottery kilns still in existence, including a “climbing” kiln, and the “NEROKURO”, which is a unique technique using a “kicking potter’s wheel”, where two artists work in synchronicity with each other.
Visitors can also observe and experience authentic indigo dyeing at a nearby indigo dyeing studio.
