Industrial Tourism in Japan
Unraku is a traditional handicraft now in its third generation. Under the mottos of "treasuring the teachings of our forefathers" and "our tradition is to stay innovative," we were the first ceramics studio in Kyoto to introduce an electric kiln and launch the mass-production and stable supply of ceramic ware. We also have the top production capacity in Kyoto. Our product lines span from daily necessities to artworks. Users enjoy greater than expected satisfaction by owning and using our products. Recently, we have seen an increase in customers from overseas and we are helping to advertise Kyoto culture by showing them our potters' plant. We work all year-round without a holiday.
