Kohakutogeisha was established by ONO, Jiro at Ureshino-machi in 2002. It is the place of three minutes' drive from the Ureshino interchange of Nagasaki Highway, facing Prefectural Route 1, with the yellow signboard as a mark. There is Ureshino-onsen which is known as the three most beautiful skin's effect in Japan near the kiln. It is the ideal environment for making ceramic, surrounded by gentle hills. Jiro was son of Hakuko who was designated as Saga Prefecture Important Intangible Cultural Asset. He studied ceramics under Konzan kiln. He became independent of the kiln with succeeding because Hakuko passed away and there was no person who took over her Kinrande, Yurikisai technique. He didn't receive lecture from Hakuko, so he challenged difficult skill with remembering his good old days of observing Hakuko's work. Consequently porcelain is created with colorful, dazzling glitters. Jiro died lamented in 2010. Jiro's wife, Emi manages the kiln currently. You can enjoy the bright wolrd of magnificent Kinrande, Yurikinsai.
