Hailing from Japan, the production process of making this pot consists of 64 to 68 steps. Most of these steps are still done by hand, and quality is strictly maintained and controlled by master craftsmen known as "Kamashi." It requires at least 15 years of apprenticeship to become a full-fledged craftsman, and 30-40 years to become a "Kamashi."
