The 5th National Yakimono (ceramics) Fair in Miyagi was held at Sendai from July 14, to July 18, 2016. National-wide potters were gathered together and displayed their proud products. This is a good opportunity for Tohoku (the north prefecture of Japan mainland) people to see and buy unfamiliar products.
One Banko-Yaki potter displayed pottery sake-ware used for a reception at the last Ise-Shima summit meeting. Bajyohai or sake cup with a long foot (stem) was beautifully decorated with platinum and gold.
In addition to ceramics products, other Japanese craft works such as japan products (laccuerware), casting ironware, hand-made paper were displayed.
