After being created in the Momoyama period in Karatsu in Kyushu, it is unearthed until the middle term of the Edo period, and there are records that Ohmi-merchants gained through trade on the northern boat root in Japan. After the Ohmi merchant, this bowl went to the hands of the Imai family in Kaga, and got a businessman in the Meiji era Masayuki Goto and then now in Yebisuya hand. From the appearance of a white glaze hanging on red soil, it was named “Aka Fuji”.
