I visit Kyoto. Kyoto is an old capital city in Japan. Ceramics fired in Kyoto are known as Kyo-yaki ( Kyoto wear ). Kyoto wear has history and tradition. 

I went to Kyoto Kyoto, the center of Japanese politics and culture, was a huge market where pottery from all over the country was donated to tea people, Miyagi, public houses, and daimyo and temples from all over the world. In the Edo period, Ningyoshi Nosamura, Arayama Ota, ⁇ Okuda, Aoki rice, etc、 There are famous potters who have been grilled and purified! !


I went to "Chawan zaka" street near Kiyomizu Temple(a Famous temple in Kyoto). "Chawan zaka" is a street having several kyoto style ceramic and pottery shops. 

In "Chawan zaka" Kouson kiln's ceramics-kyoto style ceramic ( kiyomizu-ware ) ware very beautiful and excellent.
