ASAHIYAKI is located in the Uji region of Kyoto Prefecture where is known as the center of tea culture, just across the Uji River at the foot of Mount Asahi, opposite the Byodo-in Temple.

ASAHIYAKI started the pottery works about 400 years ago during the Keicho era (Momoyama-Edo period) under the guidance of Kobori Enshu. It is regarded as one of the "Enshu Seven Kilns(Enshu nanagama)". In the times tea masters such as Sen-No- Rikyu and Kobori Enshu were active, the first kiln master Tosaku uses Mt.Asahi pottery clay, created tea utensils such as tea bowls and fresh-water containers that are favored by daimyo, official residences and tea masters.

After that, ASAHIYAKI have continued to make tea utensils in Uji without interruption for generations, in the latter half of the Edo period, the eighth generation Chobei started to make the sencha wares that is the prototype of the current shape. ASAHIYAKI grew up with the development of tea culture in Uji. ASAHIYAKI will continue to cherish the tea culture of the past and continue to walk with them.
