It was in the first year of Keio (1865) that the first Tokunaga Kosuke built the first kiln in Obo-yama, Arita Town.
Since then, we have inherited the “first intention to work on making roasted food in a single direction” without extinguishing the fire of the kiln for more than 100 years.
In 1958, a new kiln was built in Maruo, Arita, and now, in order to quickly respond to high-mix medium-volume production there, we maintain the entire process from casting to unglazed kilns, paintings, main kilns, and aka-e kilns. We are consistently producing.
In addition, we have set up an in-house LAN to connect the sales department and the manufacturing department to meet strict delivery dates. In addition, we have set up a design room and a prototype room in order to pursue Arita’s tradition and further innovation, and we are also focusing on developing original designs.
