What is Mino-yaki

Mino-yaki is one of the largest authentic pottery styles in Japan. It has started in the Heian Era (AD 794-1185) and unlike the Arita-yaki it does not have a particular pottery technique that defines this style, so it can be either porcelain or pottery. Mino-yaki is defined by where it is made in, the pottery/porcelain that is made in the Tojimi/Toki/Mizunami/Kani Region of Gifu prefecture is considered Mino-yaki. One of the famous Mino-yaki is the white beautiful Matcha bowls and now many producers create Mino-yaki of plates and cups adding some modern taste.
