Gifu Tableware Comes to Toronto

An article in the Nikkei Voice’s March issue takes a look at Masaharu Takagi, CEO of Marumo Takagi, who took his tableware to the Zen Japanese Restaurant in Toronto last year.

The Japanese pottery company is famous for Mino-yaki the ceramics produced in the Mino province of Gifu Prefecture, where approximately 50 per cent of Japan’s pottery is made. The unique feature of the ceramic is that it is not limited to the use of certain techniques, colors or shapes.

Following the encouraging interest in his pottery, Takagi hopes to launch a showroom in Canada, which he has already done in other locations around the world, including Dubai, Taiwan and Tokyo.
