Raku ware
Japanese pottery founded by Chojiro under the guidance of Sen no Rikyu, in Kyoto during the Azuchi-Momoyama period (16th century). The tradition is mainly inherited by the Raku family, which was founded by Chojiro (currently the 15th generation).The technique of hand-kneading that does not use a potter's wheel grinding is used.

Chojiro
A potter in the Azuchi-Momoyama period (16th century), the first generation of the Raku family. Originally a craftsman who burns decorative tiles, he began to bake bowls designed by Sen no Rikyu. Chojiro's bowl is considered to be a symbol of Rikyu's Wabi-cha.

Sen no Rikyu (1522-1591)
Great master of tea ceremony in the Azuchi-Momoyama period (16th century). Founder of Senke style tea ceremony. Chanoyu was brought to completion by Sen no Rikyu.

Rikyu Shichi-shu
Seven tea bowls that Sen no Rikyu particularly liked and gave names to. There were three types of black Raku, Oguro, Hachihiraki, Toyobo, and four types of red Raku, Hayafune, Kimamori, Kengyo and Rinzai.

KAMISENRO’s eyes
In Japan, Japanese tea bowls have long been used for drinking matcha. However, it can be used in various ways. We think it is a waste to miss the opportunity to touch beautiful things, because it is used only for a limited purpose. Of course, you can drink matcha, but depending on the shape of the bowl, for example, how about using it as a container for coffee, cafe au lait, or ice cream? We hope that you will incorporate a part of Japanese culture into your country's daily life in a way that suits you.
