About Kiyomizu-yaki

Kiyomizu-yaki, also known as Kyo-yaki, refers to traditional ceramics produced in Kyoto, Japan. Its origins trace back to the Heian period (794-1185), when Kyoto was Japan's capital. The pottery tradition from this era is deeply intertwined with Kyoto's culture.
Kiyomizu-yaki is characterized by its refined beauty, rich colors, and delicate decorations. These ceramics are known for a wide range of designs and styles, encompassing traditional Japanese motifs to more contemporary patterns. Kiyomizu-yaki includes various forms such as tea bowls, plates, vases, and ornamental pieces.
Predominantly handmade, Kiyomizu-yaki reflects the high skill and artistry of the craftsmen, with each piece bearing unique features. The name "Kiyomizu-yaki" originates from Kiyomizu Temple, a famous tourist destination in Kyoto. Many kilns are located in this area, and the pottery is closely linked to Kyoto's culture, hence the name. With its historical background and artistic value, Kiyomizu-yaki holds a special place in Japanese ceramics.


We store our inventory in two locations: Japan and the United States. This is because we currently have a large customer base in America. In the future, we plan to expand our distribution centers to other countries. For details on shipping methods and delivery charges, please click here.

We strive to deliver our products to our customers as quickly and affordably as possible by stocking them in both Japan and the United States wherever feasible. However, some of our teaware, especially those with limited stock or high popularity among customers worldwide, are only stocked in Japan.
