It is said that around 1816 Yamaguchi Kanbei of Temachi Village in Hitachi Province’s West Ibaraki County(present-day Shishido, Kasama City)returned to Shishido upon acquiring the techniques of pottery making in Mito and began making pottery wares for daily use. Shishido ware is another origin of Kasama ware. The Yamaguchi Kiln continues to be used today as part of the workshop Isobe Tōen. The structure of the kiln for firing Shishido is reminiscent of that used for making Sōma ware in Fukushima Prefecture.
