The Gyokuho-gama is the place of about 15 minutes' drive from the Hasamiarita interchange of Nishi-Kyushu expressway. The JR Sasebo Line is passing through the Mimasaka station, and it's the quiet place surrounded by nature. Tetsuaki-san have had a lot of experiences in his school days. Though he felt the situation is far from idea, one day he was thinking of work that looks like a galaxy shining on a celestial body. The ginga-yu glaze was invented from that concept. Gyokuho-gama has been opened with kilns for making pottery of ginga-yu. Many people across the country come to see the indescribable world of special glaze, ginga-yu.
