Seto-yaki city has a history of more than 1000 years.


Through the 3 words "food, accommodation, experience",


it hopes to be an exchange place connecting regions, cultures and people.

"Seto City" is home of Seto-yaki, one of Japan's leading pottery types located in the middle of "Ginza shopping street". There is an old private house named "Cafe & Guesthouse Moyaiya", which was renovated with the theme of its three main functions "food, accommodation, experience". As a traditional cafe & guesthouse featuring "monodzukuri" pottery it hearkens back to old town settlements of Yakimono. It hopes to be a local exchange spot connecting agricultural and livestock products, technology, culture, and people. Café & Guesthouse Moyaiya is aiming to become such an exchange.
