T. NISHIKAWA & Co., Inc. is located in the Gojozaka quarter, famous for its many kilns and ateliers of Kiyomizu Ware, in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan. Since its establishment in 1917, the company has been promoting Kiyomizu Ware and exporting it worldwide. Teizaburo Nishikawa, founder of the company, introduced Kiyomizu Ware at the Brussels World Fair in 1958. Teizaburo’s son, Keitaro, enlarged the export business and expanded it to a wide variety of traditional Japanese crafts and commodities.
Today, Kayoko, Keitaro’s daughter, has inherited the business and continues promoting the charm of the Japanese culture and Kiyomizu Ware, the representative brand of Kyoto, all over the world.
With its over 100 years of history, T. NISHIKAWA & Co., Inc. is committed to doing its utmost to promote Kiyomizu Ware and Japanese traditions. To better respond to our customers’ needs, we offer the service of developing original designs and export a variety of Japanese traditional goods: Kiyomizu Ware, tea ceremony utensils, cast iron commodities, Japanese kimono, lacquer ware, Buddhist items and antique ware, along with general gift items.
