During the Taishō era Matsubayashi Tsurunosuke (1894–1932), the younger brother of 13th generation potter Matsubayashi Kōsai (1891–1947), traveled to the United Kingdom to study. There he interacted with Hamada Shōji (1849–1978), who would later be accredited as a holder of Important Intangible Cultural Property (Living National Treasure) for his folk craft pottery, and Bernard Leach (1887–1979), the leading British potter of the 20th century.
