JETRO is supporting the Tokoname pot manufacturers in the upcoming “BEST OF” 20 years Trophy, one of the most famous Bonsai exhibitions in Europe. This event will be held at the Limburghal in Genk, Belgium, from Friday February 8th to Sunday February 10th 2019.


Tokoname bonsai pots are essential for displaying bonsai and Tokoname ceramics have been a part of Japanese living for more than 1000 years.


JETRO will participate in this event along with a delegation of four Tokonameyaki craftsmen from the Tokonameyaki Cooperative Association. Not only will they present their master works but they will showcase their expert skills through live demonstrations.

This promotional activity is organized as part of the Regional Collective Trademark Overseas Development Support Program, commissioned to JETRO by the Japan Patent Office, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).
