Miyama 

Miyama as a company dates back to 1977, but the traditions they employ are steeped in local history. Mizunami City in Gifu Prefecture, where they are located, was considered the global number one producer of porcelain for a good part of the twentieth century. They take pride in their implementation of technology in conjunction with their more traditional approaches and are committed to continuing to grow as the industry develops and changes.

Miyama uses unique molds and methods of crafting their tableware, but one of the most key factors is the high temperature oven that they use to fire the pieces. By firing in a high temperature oven, the porcelain clay and the glaze are harmonized and vitrified, creating an unmistakable luster and providing a stain-resistant, easy-to-clean surface; a perfect marriage of beauty and functionality.

Mino-yaki Earthenware

Mino-yaki earthenware is specialty pottery produced in the Mino Region (around current Toki City) of Gifu prefecture which began in the 7th century. Mino-yaki continues to adapt to modern lifestyles while preserving its history and tradition. One of the signature characteristics of Mino-yaki earthenware is its diversity. Mino-yaki does not adhere to a single form, as it has over 15 registered types of traditional handicraft in Japan.

Mansuji Series

This series features a Japanese historic kimono pattern, Mansuji. The blue underglaze on white porcelain base is applied by a traditional technique called "sometsuke" and is coated with transparent overglaze.

The set includes soba choko, a cup to hold dipping sauce for soba. In fact, it's a multi-purpose cup, so you can also use it for soup, appetizer, dessert, or use as a tea cup. It comes with a lid which also works as a small plate/ saucer to serve condiments or a small bite. You can make a beautiful soba meal served with this set.
