About the brand

Shobido Honten was found in 1959 by Ritsushi Kamachi. Shozo Kamachi, the eldest son of Ritsushi Kamachi, worked hard with his father to develop the business and traveled all over the country to expand the market for Arita porcelain. On the other hand, he worked on the return of Ko-Imari, which was exported as far as Europe in the 17th century. Many masterpieces such as Uemon and Meiji Imari were brought back to Arita. He later held exhibitions of Ko-Imari that he had brought back to his hometown all over the country, creating the opportunity for the Ko-Imari boom.

In the long history of Arita, they aim to revive the world of tradition and innovation of Arita porcelain that has been handed down and preserved by our predecessors in modern pottery. The brand "Kisen" is born.

In February 2010, the "Koimari Wine Cup" won both the Grand Prix and the Gold Prize at the "Attractive Japanese Souvenir Contest 2010" sponsored by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism and the Japan Tourism Agency. In March of the same year, the pot dish "Cacomi" was certified as a universal design recommended product by Saga Prefecture.
