Tokoname ware which has nearly 900 years of history is the most used Japanese teapot (kyusu) in the country. The vermillion teapot is pristine but simply beautiful. Though there are many kinds of teapots including, pottery, porcelain, stoneware, and cast iron in Japan, we couldn’t find the warmful color among them.

And the dragon flies over the last teapot. A dragon is regarded as mysterious and lucky in Japan and other Asian countries.
