ABOUT

OUR STORY & PHILOSOPHY

Japanese potteries and ceramics have a long history. It came to have unique features in association with the growth in popularity of Japanese tea ceremonies.

The tea ceremonies were perfected by Sen-no-Rikyu in the 16th century.


To understand the art and aesthetics of Japan, it is necessary to investigate a Japanese world view, ideas about the nature of art, and influences brought about through contact with other cultures. The aesthetics of Japan developed in a unique fashion, partly because of its geographic location. Its isolation by the sea helped protect Japan from foreign invasion and allowed its rulers to control contact with other nations. 


We would like to provide you not only ceramics, but also our culture and arts.
