Hasamiyaki has been used in people’s daily lives and it has a history of 400 years. The history is exciting and its beauty of everyday things is admired by creators from foreign countries.
In the Edo era (1600s-1800s), people in Hasami made efforts to mass produce cheap and functional pottery. After that, pottery was used as 'Kurawanka-wan', which is simple and reasonably priced for ordinary people though pottery was previously an expensive thing. Hasamiyaki was one of the bestselling products during the Edo era in Japan.
On this tour, you can learn about Hasamiyaki’s history, the specialization of making pottery in Hasami and the atelier or factories where each professional explains with a tour guide.
The guide will show you some ateliers and factories that have been making products by hand and using machines in the Nakaoyama area for 400 years.
