Wide open tea bowl with a stocky foot and a pointy hip. It has tokin (a sharp point inside the foot ring), and five meato (super marks) on both the inner surface and the foot. The whole body, except the bottom edge, is covered with engobe and coated with glaze. The small bubbles over the milky-white surface make a soft impression.
