Tobe-yaki (砥部焼) is produced around the city of Tobe on the island of Shikoku. Made with fragments of Iyo sharpening stones, it was established in 1777 by the Ozu domain. Through the Edo period (1603-1868), Tobe ware was independently manufactured. During the Meiji period (1868-1912), technology from famous production areas such as Karatsu and Seto led Tobe ware to develop swiftly.
Tobe is the leading ceramic area in the Shikoku region, located along the Japanese Median Tectonic Line, famous for its abundant pottery material. Tobe ware features a beautiful white transparent ceramic texture. Compared to Arita ware, it possesses a light gray nuance.
