Hasami ware (Nagasaki)

The history of Hasami ware dates back to the end of the Azuchi-Momoyama period, about 400 years ago.
During the Edo period, porcelain, which was expensive for ordinary people, was available at reasonable prices, so it was distributed to ordinary households. Hasami ware is very popular these days because it is a fashionable and casual type of tableware.
