---------------------------------

Tokoname is the location of one of Japan’s Six Ancient Kilns, with a ceramics history dating back to the 12th Century. Over the years it has become famous for bonsai and shochu pots, and its distinctive teapots, including red clay teapots. It is also the largest producer of maneki neko (beckoning cats) in Japan, with interesting variations dotting the access road from the train station.
