The discovery by Arakawa Toyozō caused a rush to excavate old kiln sites in Mino, with many making efforts to retrace the techniques of Kizeto, Shino, Setoguro, and Oribe wares. As the leader of this trend, Arakawa Toyozō became the very first person to be designated a National Living Treasure for his Shino and Setoguro pottery techniques in 1955, when Japan’s Important Intangible Cultural Asset system was established.
