Made in Japan specialises in ceramics from Tajimi, a small town in the Gifu Prefecture. The region has been producing sake bottles, bowls, teapots and other pottery for more than 1000 years. 

A true hospitality hero and icon, Melbournians have dined with these ceramics for decades. 

The business was originally an offshoot of Kazari, a Japanese furniture importer. Peter Longmore came across it in the late-’80s, while searching for suppliers at his Japanese-themed shop in Hobart. Sensing the brand’s potential, he bought it and moved to Melbourne.
