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.

The warm white Kiln ware with patterns painted in deep indigo and color, and the thick, chunky shape of the ware will give you a sense of wholesome, unpretentious beauty.

I recommend this product


Musubi curates a fantastic line up of products and the web site is so well thought out it’s outrageous. Plus the normally hideous process of delivery costs and time is taken care of by them for a reasonable cost or free with a reasonable order amount. Ive become addicted to the site. My only negative is sometime items go out of stock while you are evaluating if a new items and what matches. However their photos are very comprehensive in giving you a full look at the item Everything I have ordered is wonderfull and they are packing geniuses as well. This particular product has a luster that is even more than you would expect
