Osaka (Authenticity and Creative Power)

Osaka has a real sense of authenticity and creative power. The particular way of speaking of Osaka’s people is well know all over Japan where their communication skills finds no match.

During the Edo period, Osaka’s harbor was called “Nambatsu”. All kinds of products and techniques, especially ceramics, where imported from China or Korea. From Osaka they have spread all over Japan and acquired a life of their own in different areas in Japan.

This makes Osaka the origin of all the ceramic ware that is made today in Japan.
