Hasami-yaki porcelain, which is characterized by the beauty of white porcelain and the delicate painting in indigo, is a pottery made at Hasami Town in the northern part of Nagasaki Prefecture. The town is surrounded by mountains, and produce abundant good material.
The name "Hasami-yaki" may be unfamiliar to people overseas, but Hasami is a neighboring town of Arita, which is famous worldwide for Arita-yaki, and in fact, has the same roots. This region, including Hasami, which has a history of more than 400 years and still holds a large share of daily tableware, was registered as a Japanese cultural heritage in 2016.
In former days, all the pottery from this region was shipped overseas from Imari Port, so it was called "IMARI-yaki ware".
In the Meiji era (1868-1912), with the development of railroad transportation, pottery from this area was distributed nationwide from Arita Town, where the shipping station was located, thus Hasami-yaki and Arita-yaki were all called "Arita-yaki" together.
Therefore, much of what was sold as Arita-yaki at that time actually contained Hasami-yaki ware.
However, due to the revision of the law in the 2000s, the stricter notation of production area was enforced. From this point on, Hasami-yaki ware and Arita-yaki ware will be clearly separated from each other, and will be restarted from scratch as "Hasami ware".
