Art that yatsushirono soil and person create

Takada ware conveying the best of elegance of Prince history sight-seeing Tadaoki Hosokawa

We convey the best of elegance of Prince Tadaoki Hosokawa. - Takada ware  Ancestor begins in *kosonkai [whether loss] (the Japanese name: Kizo Agano [aganokizo]) brought over accompanying Prince Kiyomasa Kato after "position (1592) of Bunroku" having opened kiln in Buzen country Ueno [buzennokuniagano] in 1602.
  Afterwards, Takada ware [koudayaki] became order kiln of the Hosokawas and when Prince Tadaoki Hosokawa [we just get up] entered as the Yatsushiro lord of a castle in 1632, we followed and moved to this ground. The Lord of Tadako leaves much cultural heritage for celebrity as cultured person of Rikyu seven great thinker in Yatsushiro. Dignity that Takada ware all the more has high artistry mainly on technique of celadon porcelain inlay [politics inlay] unlike daily potteries(N,,pottery)/PL/ features flavor that there is.
  We open kiln at first in Nara tree [naragi] (existing Naragimachi, Yatsushiro-shi) of Takada and move to Hirayama before long. Ascending kiln of Hirayama kiln barely leaves model now and can remember flourishing business of the past. There is grave of Kizo Agano who came according to the Lord of Tadako in those days near.
  Technique that has been inherited is followed from generation to generation and, for 400 years, can still see making earthenware that we put together in the times.
