Following the death of Emperor Taishō, Crown Prince Hirohito ascended to the throne and immediately changed the era name to “Shōwa”. Shōwa was the longest era in Japanese history, with both the “first year” and “64th year” lasting only 7 days, making the actual duration 62 years and 14 days. It is worth noting that even when including foreign era names, only Shōwa (64 years), the Qing dynasty’s Kangxi (61 years), and Qianlong (60 years) lasted for more than 60 years.
Kamakura Period Middle Bowl Various ceramics were produced in the old kilns of Aichi Prefecture during the early Kamakura period, including Saratobe ware, Mino ware, Seto ware, and Yama chawan. These were items used by common people, characterized by their rough and thick appearance, lack of glaze, and simple style. They were free from cracks, and any chips on the rim were mended with kintsugi, a technique using smoked gold, at six different points, creating a beautiful pattern. The largest kintsugi repair has a slight roughness when touched with a fingertip. This medium-sized plate appears to have been used as a prop in the NHK Taiga drama “Kamakura-dono no 13-nin”. Its diameter is about 16cm, height is about 5.5cm, and weight is about 320g.

Yayoi period, Stone mortar, rubbing stone Excavated from a Yayoi period complex site in Gunma Prefecture. When and where did Japan’s stone mortars come from? According to the “Nihon Shoki” (“Chronicles of Japan”), “In the 18th year of Emperor Suiko’s reign (610 A.D.) in the spring of March, the King of Koryo presented two monks named Damso and Chong, who made the first millstone. It is said that the manufacture of millstones began at this time.” Millstones were water-powered flour mills developed in China, and were operated by nobles and temples to make profits. This technology seems to have been introduced to Japan at that time.
