Pejite is part ceramics gallery and part fashion boutique, housed in what looked like a restored warehouse with a high exposed rafters, complete with a wood heater to keep toasty in the winter.

And finally, the one stop shop, Starnet, that had a boutique, gallery, cafe and a small produce shop.

There are a number of studios in the town that offer various types of pottery experiences: painting a ceramic plate, hand formed and electric wheel pottery.

Reservations are typically recommended for these hands-on activities, but I managed to get into a class without prior reservations.

For our late autumn edition of the Chotto Zeitaku series, I made my way to Mashiko to indulge in a bit of traditional craftsmanship and check out some ateliers in the area.

The interesting part of the town is the Jonaizaka area, about 15 minutes from Mashiko Station.

I could see myself going to Mashiko in the winter and enjoying a "hygge" time at the cafes and galleries with my friends.

(Hygge is a Danish term and concept that loosely translates to being surrounded by everything good in your life with the people you love, creating that warm feeling of happiness and contentment.) Of course, no trip to Mashiko would be completed without experiencing the craft that the town is famous for, pottery.

It almost felt that each shop was related to the next, despite being independent from the other.

There was that antique shop, Nihei Furukagu that had lots of vintage furniture sourced from all over the country and restored with love.

Being slightly off the tourist route in Mashiko, there were few visitors at the temple when I was there.
