Collaboration between modern design and traditional craftsmen.
Airtight lid for the optimal brewing temperature.
The handle is specially designed with a small tip coming out to rest your finger on for steadiness when pouring tea.
The dip is angled so you can pour until the last drop. This is the proper and respectful way to pour tea.
All these elements, combined with its incredible lightness in weight, make the Hirakyusu teapot a joy to use and shows the honed precision of Japanese craftsmanship. This teapot uses the craftsmanship of Tokoname, which has long been a famous teapot production area in Japan. An unglazed finishing is applied on the product and the smooth surface gloss increases each time you brew tea .
As the Japanese name implies, this teapot is flat and has a large opening. It makes it easy to add or remove the tea and there is plenty of space for the tea leaves to sufficiently infuse inside.
The inner tea strainer is made by making fine holes in a ceramic plate. It has a unique structure that does not easily clog the tea leaves while straining.
It is important for tea to be thoroughly steamed, and to be able to pour out every last drop, and that the lid and the main unit should close properly. This teapot achieves its high sealing performance by adding a special process called "lidding", which requires the craftsman to rub the lid and body multiple times until the finishing is perfect.

Passionate about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations - yet somehow remaining contemporary.
Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which have been selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
All sizing information is for guide purposes only.
Where possible we provide individual product size guides. If these aren't available we provide a generic brand size guide. Individual garments may differ from these measurements and we cannot guarantee the item you receive will match these measurements exactly.
Many brands also have a level of tolerance in size differences between the same item - this is usually 0.5 inches.
If no size guide is shown below, it means there is not one available at present for this item and it will be added if/when it becomes available.
