Tanba old-fashioned sake bottles and new “TanbaStyle” !


One of the traditional pottery making centers is Tanba-Yaki located at Konda-Cho, Hyogo-Ken. Potters’ family have handed down their expertise within the village from generation to generation. Because of the background, potters have the same family names such as Onishi, Ogami , Ichino, Shimizu and the like. We can still enjoy the traditional old-fashioned pottery like “Unglazed Tokkuri or sake bottle” here. In addition, we are very pleased to know that contemporary tableware is proposed by younger potters, celled “TanbaStyle”. Tanba-Yaki is one of the most active pottery center in Japan.
