Old and current Tokoname-Yaki (Aichi) !!


The production center of Tokoname-Yaki is located at Tokoname City, Aichi Prefecture. Tokoname-Yaki is one of The Six Old Kilns in Japan and influenced the development of other kilns such as Sigaraki-Yaki and Tanba-Yaki in the Japanese medieval period. Japanese red tea pots, made of red clay is one of the features nowadays.
Here is a well-know The Walk Way where we can enjoy nostalgic scenery of the old kilns and their chimneys and the sophisticated products at the potters’ galleries.
