The teapot was made in Tokoname city, which has a 900-year-long history and tradition of pottery-making and is well known throughout Japan. In Japan, there are six ancient kilns – Tokoname, Seto, Echizen, Shigaraki, Tanba, and Bizen – and Tokoname has the oldest and largest of them. Tea lovers believed that teas have a sweeter, mellower flavour when brewed in clay teapots. This fact, combined with high-quality craftsmanship and design, makes Tokoname teapots popular among Japanese green-tea lovers.
