- What is Chatsubo (Tea Caddies)?: The Chatsubo is a porcelain container to store Tencha (If you grind Tencha in a stone mill, you get powdered green tea, Matcha) During the Edo period, in order to offer Uji tea to the Tokugawa Shogun Family, 'Chatsubo Dochu (Tea Caddy Road)' was made from Kyoto to Edo (Tokyo) to carry tea pots and caddies filled with tea leaves.
- About Shitoro-Yaki: Pottery baked in Kanaya, Shimada City, Shizuoka Prefecture. It is believed a first potter from Mino Province built a kiln in Shitoro Township in the Ashikaga Period (in the 1500s). Even these days, tea ceremony related containers are made in Shitoro. The base color of the Shitoro ware is pale red, and the glaze is called 'tiger stripes' from the color combination of black sprinkled over a pale yellow.

Her is a master of 'tiger stripes' where high technique is required, and continues to carry down the traditional techqunie. By using the glaze in a free style, he creates a variety of tiger stripes in the rustic style of Shitoro-Yaki.
