We produce and sell Bizen pottery. Use our pottery and enjoy the Bizen pottery tradition in your everyday life.
Bizen pottery could technically be called "Inbe Pottery", as the centre of Bizen pottery-making is an area called Inbe, in the city of Bizen. During the Kamakura period, pottery was produced in Kumayama, west of Inbe. Industrial development however, forced the potters to move to the mountains, where they founded the village of Inbe and began the Bizen pottery tradition. Today this tradition continues, remaining virtually unchanged and enjoying popularity and prosperity.
