Musubi Kiln is established at Kawai-cho, Kitakatsuargi-gun, Nara prefecture. It is the place of eight minutes' drive from the Owada station, Kintetsu Tawara Line. Higuchi became an apprentice under IWABUCHI, Shigeya in Kyoto, then he moved to Kagawa prefecture to receive pottery training. The period was about three years. He thought lots of things to open the kiln while getting back to Kinki region, and the building was established in the neighborhood of Horyu-ji temple. Ando-cho where it's nearby Horyu-ji was the birthplace of TOMIMOTO, Kenkichi who was a master of modern Japanese ceramics. Iwabuchi followed the Tomimoto's style and Higuchi had the desire to work near the place related to Tomimoto. The Musubi kiln was built at Kawai-cho where it's on the opposite side of Ando-cho across the Yamato river. There are the working place and a separate room to hold the pottery class. His pupils discovers and enjoys "ceramics" more through under his direction.
