GTK would like to introduce the real Kyoto life by GTK bloggers. Some of them migrated from their countries

Kawai Kanjiro is a well-known potter in the beginning of 20th century. He was born in SHimane Prefecture in 1890, and moved to Kyoto to start his potter life in 1920. His pottery is folklore, so look warm and nostalgic.
