Kyoto ceramic tiles can be seen in almost every photo of Kyoto. The craft has continued since the 16th century, when outstanding tile makers from all over Japan were gathered in Higashiyama for the construction of the Daibutsuden (Great Buddha Hall) inside Hōkōji temple. Kyoto ceramic tiles are produced in Kyoto and have a profound shine which is made possible through migaki (polishing) and ibushi (smoking).
