~ About Tokoname Ware ~

Tokoname is one of the six oldest kilns in Japan and has continued to produce pottery from the Middle Ages to the present day. Facing Ise Bay and blessed with clay and pine trees for fuel, pots and jars were produced from the Heian period (794-1192), and mountain tea bowls, small bowls, and small plates were produced in the Kamakura period (1192-1333), and spread throughout Japan by marine transport. In the late Edo period (1603-1867), ceramic pipes (earthenware pipes) and red clay teapots were produced. Later, the area also mass-produced bricks, tiles, and sanitary ware, and became a pottery production center that played a role in the construction of the modern nation. After the war, the ceramic industry developed, and today, the region produces a wide variety of ceramics, not limited to pottery.
