Tokoname-yaki ware is said to have been produced in the city of Tokoname, Aichi Prefecture for over 1,000 years. Originally, items such as vases were fired using a method known as shizenyu yakijime, in which pottery is fired without glaze. Later, Tokoname ware became famous for the production of earthenware pipes, and is now widely known for pottery using red clay. Tokoname ware was designated a traditional craft in 1976.'
