All-You-Can-Carry Treasure Hunt In 150-Year-Old Porcelain Warehouse In Japan

Published 12 months ago

Ceramics production company Kouraku Kiln in Arita, Japan has been in business since 1865 and during the last 150 years, they’ve accumulated a pretty big stock of unsold products. So big in fact that even workers themselves don’t know what’s in these warehouses anymore, especially as they’re over 100,000 different items.

So now they’ve decided to get rid of all of it by introducing a treasure hunt that takes place inside their enormous warehouses. For a $45 admission fee, you get to take as much as you can carry, and for $90 you’ll even be shown a special selection of decoratively painted ceramics.

Just make sure you reserve a spot in advance as only 10 people are let in every day.
