There are six oldest kilns in Japan. Seto, Echizen, Shigaraki, Tamba, Bizen, and Tokoname. Each kiln began in the Middle Ages and their potteries are still a part of the people’s life. Though various kinds of tableware are on display in a shop today, a product of Tokoname ware has the largest market share in the industry. That is Japanese teapot kyusu. The Tokoname red kyusu is just an old and typical teapot of the Japanese people.

Iron oxide of the pottery’s cray makes the teapot subdued vermillion color. And the Tokoname ware traditional craftsmen (there are 31 certificated craftsmen) bake the teapots without glazing. But they also produce black, yellow, green and brown Tokoname kyusu by glazing.

But the unglazed teapot has a good effect for a taste of a tea. Iron oxide directly eases bitterness and make it mild.
