The creator of this décor is Nobuho Miya, a world-class designer and master of Nambu ironware, which has recently been drawing attention abroad as well as in Japan. He is also the third-generation head of Kamasada, a Nambu ironware manufacturer established during the Meiji Period (1868-1912). Located in the Northeastern part of Honshu in Morioka City, Iwate Prefecture, Kamasada has been preserving traditional manufacturing methods for more than a hundred years. The company continues to mine the potential of Nanbu ironware, breathing new life into traditional designs to create products that will surely be loved by generations to come.
