So you’ve bought a teapot, drunk some sencha and eaten sushi. Now it’s time to visit the place they all came from

I don’t know how many times I hear people say: “I’d love to visit Japan but it’s just so expensive/far away/difficult”. All wrong (except the far away bit – it is far away!). However, if you do want to take a trip to the country where you cast-iron teapot was born, here are a few recommendations – some known, some a little off the beaten track.

 

The Iwate factory

This is where Iron Kitchen’s cast-iron teapots are born and grow up. Why not take a trip to the factory and watch some masterful artisans at work?

How one Tokyo shop is keeping the cast-iron traditional alive and well

A couple of month’s back, I came across this lovely article (http://www.japantimes.co.jp/life/2016/01/08/food/a-cast-iron-teapot-in-tokyos-kitchenware-district/#.VyC-FGMfCN8) in the Japan Times about a small cast-iron cookware in Tokyo called Kama Asa. It’s written by designer Jasper Morrison and gives a short insight into how the Japanese are keeping the cast-iron cookware traditional alive. We hope you like it.
