Kyoto Ware is the ceramics to be produced at kilns in Kyoto. Especially, Kiyomizu Ware is well-known, yet it is just one of various kinds of Kyoto Ware: Awataguchi Ware, Otoba Ware, Kurotani Ware, Omuro Ware, Yasaka Ware and Momoyama Ware. It has a history of 1,200 years. At the Nara era, a monk, Gyoki built his kiln at the Seikan Temple (Higashiyama-ku in Kyoto prefecture) and produced unglazed earthenware. It became famous as "Chawanzaka." See "Kyoto Ware". Japan Pottery Net. Retrieved 2014-05-01.
