Tamba pottery, view 01., fields in valley in front of village

Abstract

The ancient pottery village of Tachikui, in the region formerly known as the Tamba region, is commonly called, simply, Tamba. It is in the mountains west of Kyoto and north of Kobe. One of the so-called "six ancient kilns" of Japan (the others being Echizen, Bizen, Shigaraki, Tokoname, and Seto), pottery has been produced continuously at this site since the Kamakura period, an unbroken tradition of perhaps 700 or 800 years. It is still (as of 1972, at any rate) a quiet, rural village built along the base of mountain, facing across the rice fields in the valley. A number of the families in the village continue the traditional pattern of being part-time farmers and part-time potters.
