“Hasamiyaki has been used in people’s daily lives and it has a history of 400 years. The history is exciting and its beauty of everyday things is admired by creators from foreign countries.
– In the Edo era (1600s-1800s), people in Hasami made efforts to mass produce cheap and functional pottery. After that, pottery was used as ‘Kurawanka-wan’, which is simple and reasonably priced for ordinary people though pottery was previously an expensive thing. Hasamiyaki was one of the bestselling products during the Edo era in Japan.
– You will experience casting, that is the fundamental step of making Hasamiyaki, after learning the history of Hasamiyaki and the system of making pottery in Hasami.

– You will try painting after slip casting, then get your own pottery delivered to you after the tour.
