Pottery was first made in Koishiwara in 1682 as a result of the relocation of the Korean-founded Takatori workshop to nearby Tsuzumi. A kiln for firing porcelain was built in Koishiwara, and porcelain wares were made for export there with local materials until the eighteenth century. The Koishiwara style as it is known today had developed by the mid-eighteenth century. Abandoning porcelain production, potters began to use dark-firing stoneware for their pottery.
