Hasami Ware Background

Hasami Ware is a type of Japanese pottery craft with more than 400 years of history, said to have been born in 1599 (4th year of Keicho, in the Japanese calendar). Even nowadays, it still accounts for about 16% of the daily-used tableware in Japan, but has long been sold under the denomination "Arita Ware". It's only recently that the Hasami Ware technique was strictly labelled to comprise solely the crafts from the eponymous city, synonym of high quality and modern design.

About the production area

Hasami Wares are produced in the town of Hasami, Higashisonogi County, in the northern part of the Nagasaki Prefecture, in the south of Kyushu (one of Japan 3 main islands). It is adjacent to the town of Arita, in the Saga Prefecture, famous for its pottery.
Including a total area of about 56㎢ and a population of 15,000 people, it is said that 20 to 30% of this population work in the pottery industry.
