The angle and size of the handle are just right, making it easy to hold and use. The lid is finished using a rubbing technique unique to Tokoname so that it fits perfectly with the body. The tea strainer inside the teapot is also carefully made of the same clay.

<Tokoname ware>

Tokoname ware is a type of pottery made in Tokoname City, Aichi Prefecture. During the Middle Ages, it was Japan's largest ceramic production area, and in addition to daily necessities such as plates, bowls, and pots, it also produced large pottery such as jars and pots.

From the end of the Edo period (around 1858 AD), red clay tea utensils and sake utensils were also made. Since the mid-Showa era (1962 AD), electric furnace technology for red clay has been established.

There are clays suitable for teapots, such as red clay and black clay, and the techniques used to make teapots are extremely high. It is Japan's largest teapot production area.
