Kyogawara, Inc. (Asada Kawara Factory)
We are the only potters that manufacture Kyoto-style roof tiles which have been designated as a traditional industry of Kyoto
We have worked on the roof tiles of famous temples all over the country, including the world heritage sites of Toji Temple and Nanzenji Temple. We specialize in special roof tiles that cannot be made by machines, such as Onigawara and Shoki (decorative ridge-end tiles), and we also focus on floor tiles such as flooring and wall materials.
- The strong appeal of Ibushi-Gin based on Kyoto-style tiles (Kyo-Gawara roofing tiles) made of the highest-quality building materials
Kyoto-style tiles are used for buildings for which only authentic tiles are chosen, such as Toji Temple, Nanzen-ji Temple, and Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto. In addition to how these tiles have been smoked and polished, they are made without using any glaze. The biggest appeal about these tiles is their pale silver luster which is called Ibushi-Gin in Japanese.
Flooring and wall materials
Kyoto-style tiles are also used as flooring and wall materials for building owners who want to create a really hospitable place, such as Park Hotel Kyoto and the French restaurant Kyoto Mashiro.
For luxury restaurants
In addition to Mukozuke (flat plates) used for traditional Japanese fine dining (kaiseki), the select choices of restaurant owners are achieved with Kyoto-style tiles, for example Kawara coasters which really absorb moisture and chopstick rests with family crests. In addition, other popular products are amulets called Shoki (for warding off evil) and Shijin (of the four Taoist gods that reign over the four directions).
