Mino-yaki (Mino ware) has been produced in Gifu prefecture since the mid-Heian period (794-1185). An abundant supply of fine quality clay and a long tradition of skilled craftsmen here led to the birth of the Japanese tea culture. Beautiful ceramic wares such as Oribe-yaki (Oribe ware) were created by artisans, and by the Edo period (1603-1867), Mino became a center for the extensive production of ceramics. Today, more than 60% of Japanese pottery is produced in this area.
