Japanese ceramics and Bizen stoneware were traditionally produced around the village of Imbe in the province of Bizen. Manufacturing began during the Kamakura period (14th century)
During the Edo period, several families received special privileges from Lord Ikeda of the Okayama estate.
At the beginning of the Meiji period the craftsmen modernized until they almost disappeared, as they did many other traditional crafts, circa 1930.
The artist Kaneshige Toyo (1896–1967) helped preserve this in the 1930s during the early Shōwa period by reviving the Momoyama style. For his efforts he was named a "Living National Treasure" by Hiro-Hito.
