Our story started at the beginning of the Meiji era (1868-1912), when our ancestor Kunitaro Noda opened a small workshop near of a clay quarry in the Arita forest. The fame of Arita porcelain dates back to the 17th century, when the forest was found to have the noble raw material necessary for the production of “Arita-yaki”.
Since the foundation of Kamachi Tôhô in 1953, we have been making traditional Japanese crockery and developed our skills under the brand name “Sho-Uémon”.
We worked directly with hotels, ryokans or ryoteis (traditional Japanese inns and tables) and we often made custom-made dishes, subtly meeting our customers needs. This conscientious work over the years has made us well known in the hotel and restaurant industry.
