Crown your dinner table with joy!
Like many Japanese firms, Daikei is a close-knit, family-owned business.
When the Mori family established it in 1879,
they saw it not just as a manufacturer of household goods,
but as a company devoted to broad scientific and humanistic interests.
[These are the original proclamations establishing our Hachiemon-Gama kiln and company as an officially recognized enterprise.]
The company’s director today, Yoshihisa Mori, himself an inventor,
has sought to bring Daikei forward on the foundation
of what it can add to the science of cooking with porcelain.
Yes, Hachi cookware is beautiful, and the company has always held close to its reputation
for producing work of outstanding grace, color, and form.
But through the many generations that have carried the torch,
each has contributed something more, pushed harder,
toward making the products better to use, better to enhance
the user’s everyday cooking and dining experience on every level.
We’re pleased to bring you the culmination
of our efforts in the form of our new HACHI cookware,
and invite you to write to us with any questions or comments you may have.
We look forward to hearing from you!
