Kutani ceramics have their origin in a small remote village in the mountains (Kutani means 9 valleys) of the Ishikawa Prefecture. The main city, Kanazawa, is one of the most famous castle towns in Japan. If Kutani ceramics are little known overseas, on the contrary they are very famous in Japan as they are really representative of the Japanese culture.

Kutani history is closely linked with the history of Japan and with the development of Ishikawa Prefecture. However who knows where Kanazawa is?
