What is Kutani?

ko-kutaniThe origin is Ko-Kutani.The history of Kutani ceramics dates back to the early Edo period, around the year 1655. Maeda Toshiharu, the first Lord of Daishoji (belonging to the Kaga-han), focused his attention on the development of pottery, although in the territory of Kutani (today: Kutani,Yamanaka Town,Ishikawa Prefecture) gold mines have been found. Toshiharu dispatched Goto Saijiro, who had been engaging in mining development and industry, to Hizen Arita, so that he could master their pottery technique. The establishment of an own Kutani kiln began with the adoption of this new skill.
