This teapot joined our tea set today. It is one of Japanese traditional ironware called 'NANBU TEKKI'. Likely, which has been made in TOHOKU region for about 400 years. About 400 years history! Wish TOHOKU region will revive as soon as possible.
He and his wife took care of us very much, when we were in Boise about 5years ago. Since he had a business trip to Japan, we could have chance to see him. He was very surprised by our older daughter's rapid growth(she was just 2~3 years old at that time), and pleased to see our younger daughter first time. Thank you for coming, we were very very glad to see you again!
