Aizuhongo ware

About Aizuhongo ware

Aizuhongo ware originated when craftsmen were invited from the Harima Province (now Hyogo Prefecture) to make roof tiles for Wakamatsu Castle, and in 1645, the lord of the Aizu Domain invited potters from Seto, and pottery started to be made in this area to a large extent. Later, the Aizu clan had potters sneak into Arita to learn the techniques of porcelain making, and in 1800, the production of porcelain began using Okubo pottery stone discovered in Hongo Village.
