Hachiman ware 八幡焼 was made near Toda Hachimangu Shrine in Hirose Town, Yasugi City, Shimane Prefecture. It is said that Hachiman ware originated in 1723 when the Shinto priest, Takeya Buzen-no-kami, and the feudal retainer, Kumagai Yoshitake, from the Toda Hachimangu Shrine, invited a potter from Sakushu (Mimasaka Province, or the current Okayama Prefecture), and had him establish a kiln.
