Of the six ancient kiln towns of Japan: Seto, Shigaraki, Echizen, Tanba, and Bizen, Tokoname is the oldest and largest. Dating back to the 12th century, this specific type of pottery has been held in high esteem for its unique terroir. The clay gathered from the Chita peninsula contains a large amount of iron, making the clay turn red after baking (shudei).
