Original nail art stickers have been designed to give you even more opportunities to be exposed to ceramics in Hizen!
Created in the spring of 2018, traditional patterns have been transformed into lovely, modern designs, with eight different kinds of patterns representing each area in Hizen.
They are easy to put on! After wetting the stickers with water, attach them to your nails once the stickers become soft. Once the stickers have dried, just cut off the extra parts, and voila!
Nail art stickers are a great way to remember your trip and as souvenirs.
