The history of pottery in Kyoto goes back over 1200 years ago.
In the Nara period, the monk Gyoki built a furnace in the Seikan Temple (Higashiyama District) and produced earthenware. The remains of this are now called Chawansaka (Rice Bowl Hill).

In the Kyoto Handicraft Center, we offer a wide variety of goods, ranging from Kiyomizu Pottery to Arita Pottery. We sell these pieces in the "Japan's Finest" section of the store on the 2nd floor.
