Nishijin, Other area of Sawara-ku
Takatori pottery was originally made in the kiln set up by a Korean master called Hachizan who came to Japan with Kuroda Josui. The kiln was patronized by the Kuroda clan. Kamei Masahisa succeeded the 15th Kamei Miraku in 2001 and has since been preserving the traditional art at the Miraku kiln. The 14th Miraku is also making pottery under the art-name of Yushoan. The art of the 14th Miraku was designated as an intangible cultural heritage of Fukuoka city in 1977. Here at the Miraku kiln, mainly Cha-ire (tea vessel), Mizusashi (water vessel), Kashiki (sweets bowl), Chawan (tea bowl) and vases are made.
