Using Japanese Ceramics
Traditional ceramics, potteries, porcelains in Japan

In Japan, we have an idea that dishes are the part of a dinner, and an important element of brightening up a dinner. Japanese dishes have different shapes, designs, concepts from European ones, so to think about unique usages of Japanese ceramics will put a fresh sense into your dinner, and get it more enjoyable.

On another front, there are plenty of artistic crafts for displaying as objects of art in Japanese potteries and porcelains. Just put one seasonal flower in a small vase of Bizen Yaki (Bizen, Okayama Prefecture), it will give a superior peace and quiet for you and your room.


For displaying plates, we recommend displaying plates of Arita Yaki / Imari Yaki (Arita, Saga Prefecture, Imari, Saga Prefecture), which are gorgeous and sophisticated. For examples, Kakiemon, Kinrande, Nabeshima
