    Baizan Kiln is the oldest existing kiln in Tobe City, Ehime Prefecture, Japan.

    Since its opening in 1882, the kiln has been inheriting its traditions for over 130 years.

    They have been making use of the materials of “Tobe” to produce practical handicrafts with the concept of "use and beauty”.

    Unpretentious beauty

    Since then, Baizan Kiln has developed through trade both in Japan and overseas, especially to Southeast Asia, India, and the United States.
