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?
