What you can expect

[Especially for those who are interested in craftsmanship and potteries, and shopping it.]

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.

  • Especially. Isshingama's design using planes is worth to seeing.
