Getou-an Saredo is a lovely cafe/gallery on Route 281, close to Kami Arita Station. The shop contains a great selection of local pottery, lacquerware, packaged foods, and other handmade products. In the cafe, customers can choose from curry & rice, fried rice with soup, pasta in a shoyu-based sauce, or french toast with fruit - for lunch or as a dessert. They also offer a selection of juices, coffee, cocoa, etc. The staff is very friendly and some English is spoken.
