Kutani ware is a style of Japanese porcelain known for multiple colors such as different greens, blues, yellows, purples and reds. The most significant feature of Kutani ware is its attractive appearance.
The history of Kutani-yaki goes back to around the 17th century. The first lord of Daishoji Domain, Maeda Toshiharu, told his retainer Goto Saijiro to go learn about pottery in Hizen-arita, after magnetite was discovered in Kaneyama, Kutani, which is now Sannaka cho, Kutani in Ishikawa Prefecture. He adopted its techniques and built a kiln in Kutani, which is said to be the beginning of Kutani-yaki.
