What is Agano ware?

Invited by Hideyoshi Toyotomi for the Bunroku-Keicho War, Sonkai was a potter of the Joseon Dynasty who was naturalized under Lord Kiyomasa Kato.

In the Tokugawa period, Kobori Enshu, a great tea master who served as a tea ceremony instructor in the Tokugawa family, selected seven kilns nationwide to make tea utensils.
