Tokoname-Yaki

Writin’ about Japanese stuff. ๐Ÿ˜€

This Japanese teapot is called TOKONAME-YAKI originated from Tokoname city somewhere in Japan. It is made of a type of Japanese ceramics called tokonameyaki, I think. Heh!heh! It has a history dated as far back as 900 years.

Thereโ€™s a coil of filter inside which is cool!

I bought it as a souvenir from my recent trip there. I wanted to buy something uniquely Japanese and made in Japan. The teapot attracted my attention. A bit pricey though. And I wasnโ€™t aware of its historical significance then. Glad I chose it. K-san e-mailed me the info when I reached Malaysia. Domo! ๐Ÿ™‚

The first time I visited Japan, I bought bedroom yukatas ๐Ÿ˜› for the whole family. The hotel where I stayed provided me a very comfy yukata to wear every night and I was enticed into buying one but ended up buying 7!!! ๐Ÿ˜† . I still wear mine sometimes.

Well, the 2nd time I went there, I met Touya. I brought him home with me. Heh!heh! ๐Ÿ˜‰
