Perfect for special occasions when you want to enjoy Japanese tea with your family or guests, or as a special gift for those who love Japanese culture and unique items.
The porcelain is made from a fine-grained white clay called kaolin, with added ingredients including feldspar and fine bone ash. It is a thin porcelain, but strong and durable.
Kutani-ware is a craft that has been handed down through the ages. It has a history of over 350 years. Its long history has evolved through the tireless efforts and enthusiasm of people who have sought innovation while maintaining tradition.
Made by craftsman Keigo Kamide, who is the 6th generation of Kutani Choemon Kiln. It is his desire to create universal and fresh expressions based on the history of Kiln, and to pass on Kutani-ware to the present with flexible ideas that are not limited by tradition or boundaries.
Designed by Kamide Keigo

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.
Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
