Tanba Tachikui-yaki
Tanba Tachikui Pottery

Tachikui Pottery, one of the six oldest kilns with Seto, Tokoname, Shigaraki, Bizen, Echizen in Japan, dated back from the Kamakura era. Ana-gama, a kiln with a chamber like a tunnel, was used until the end of the Momoyama era, but Nobori-gama, a kiln with stepped chambers, has been used since then. Nobori-gama of Tachikui was appointed as an intangible cultural asset years ago because Nobori-gama in an old style is rare, remaining only here.
The works when Ana-gama was used were mainly pots and jars without glaze. After Nobori-gama appeared, they are made on a potter's wheel and glazed. In consequence, a great variety of the works have come out.
