【 Product Type: Kyusu 急須, Tokoname ware 】

A round shaped Kyusu teapot by Shunjyu (春 秋) ceramic studio in Tokoname (Aichi prefecture), one of the six oldest ceramic production regions in Japan.

Eine runde Kyusu-Teekanne vom Keramikstudio Shunjyu (春 秋) aus dem Tokoname (Präfektur Aichi), einer der sechs ältesten Keramikproduktionsregionen japans. 


Die schokoladenfarbene Teekanne hat einen cremeweißen Überzug auf Körper und Deckel, auf dem eine hübsche rote Pflaumenblüte elegant blüht. Die Zweige und Blütenkerne werden von Hand geschnitzt, damit die Braune von Grundfarbe sichtbar wird. 


1) Each Kyusu is unique and painstakingly handcrafted. With artist stamp. 

2) The Kyusu has a built-in ceramic strainer, made in the Tokoname-yaki tradition. 

3) Warm color tone with delicate hand-painted plum blossom pattern makes unique and elegant appearance.

4) For 250 ml in volume, the perfect size for brewing a cup of tea, making it a perfect gift.

5) Using red natural clay (Japanese: Shudei 朱泥) particularly enriched with natural iron-oxide.

* It is said that any astringency and bitterness found in Japanese green teas are adjusted by the reaction of the iron contained in Tokoname ware's red mud with the tannin of the tea, resulting in a delicious and mellow taste.

🔸常滑焼 TOKONAME-YAKI -  A tradition of quality

Tokoname (常滑) is located near Chubu International Airport in southern Nagoya, Aichi Prefcture. High quality earthenware has been produced here since the 12th century, and still now, Tokoname is a center of pottery production in Japan.


Tokoname is one of Japan's six most important ancient kiln towns - the others are Bizen (備前), Echizen (越前), Seto (瀬戸), Shigaraki (信楽) and Tanba (丹波) - had the largest output of ceramics of any kiln town in the Edo Period (1600-1868). 


In particular, Tokoname used to be the main production site for ceramic water pipes. In modern times, it is known around the world for its ornaments such as tea sets and beckoning cats.
