Banko ware, known all over the country for its unique texture of teapot and bowls, was developed by Kuwana city's wealthy merchant, Numanami Rozan, in the Ise region, which was a relay point for East-West trade in the middle of the Edo period. It is said that the name comes from the seal "Banko fueki", which was stamped with the hope that it will remain for a long time. Although it is a colored pottery, it has a unique emotional expression that is different from the delicacy of Kyo ware, and has prospered as a local industry in Yokkaichi since the Meiji era with the popularity of sencha.
