Experience the World of Manufacturing from Days Gone By
In medieval Japan, Tokoname flourished as a center of ceramics and was known as one of the Six Ancient Kilns of Japan. As a center for traditional ceramics, Tokoname prospored as a manufacturer of teapots, cups, brick and tile—both before and after the war. The chimneys and kilns of the day still exist as they were even now. Tokoname is a great place to explore the maze-like streets of early modern Japan.
