Dohei Kiln is the place of thirty minutes' drive from Karatsu city. It is in the mountains near the Yobuko port or Nagoya Castle which designated as a National Historic Site of Japan, and is established on the gentle slope. The trees and the plants grow rich in the garden around the workplace and there is the tea ceremony room at a distance. There is an exhibition room for pottery and many vessels are placed such as Egaratsu, Chosengaratsu, and Madaragaratsu. Dohei-san and his son Yotaro-san have each exhibition room. Most of pottery is fired in the climbing kiln, while others are baked in anagama. Enjoy Karatsu-yaki works with a sense of modern.
