A new story called “Picture book that starts with a container” *May 2024 Arita Pottery Fair Linked<-Experience-Daruma-kun, a lively character who looks like he’s about to jump out of his container. Koraku Kiln Tokunaga Ceramics Co., Ltd. continues to disseminate Arita ware from various perspectives to a wide range of users.
So far* Treasure hunting* and long-term pottery making experience for artists* This energetic pottery is attracting a lot of attention from around the world, has been featured in many media outlets, and is trying to break the concept of traditional crafts.

Daruma-kun was born out of a conversation with Hiroko , a traditional Arita ware craftsman. “It’s a waste to limit this to just pottery! Let’s move it around more freely and let everyone enjoy it!” That’s how the project began to move.
What is treasure hunting?
As new content for sightseeing in Saga Prefecture, it has been featured in many media such as “Why are you going to Japan” and “Matsuko Ariyoshi’s Karisome Heaven”.
Fill your basket with hundreds of thousands of pottery items! Treasure hunting details Arita Town appears in the picture book!
The picture book is a hardcover, thread-bound, 32-page authentic picture book, with illustrations by Hiroko , a traditional Arita ware craftsman, and the story by Takanobu Tokunaga,
representative director of Koraku Kiln. It took half a year to create. The theme of the picture book is the importance of food, and it tells the story of Daruma-kun, who struggles to get Ako-chan, who hates food, to eat it. Daruma-kun, who is red and looks like a cherry tomato, moves around inside the picture book.
