The birth of Hasamiyaki dates back to about 400 years ago. The feudal lord Omura Yoshiaki who participated in the Imjin War in 1598 brought back the Korean potters, the Riyukei brothers. The following year, stepped climbing kilns were built at Hatanohara, Furusaraya and Yamanita in Muraki, Hasami, and pottery making began. It is said that Hasamiyaki first began at these places. Features of Hasamiyaki are the transparent-like beauty of its white porcelain and its deeply nuanced fine zaffer decoration.
These days, in accordance with various needs, a variety of Hasamiyaki is produced, from general household tableware to traditional craft items and items in modern designs to suit the current period.
