Fodor's Review

The five casters here create the fine iron work, and their products are as authentic and beautiful as Nanbu-tekki can be. Designed by resident master caster Nobuho Miya, a saucepan with a wooden handle is elegantly traditional yet modern. Equally attractive teakettles come in all sizes and prices. If you want to place a special order, your piece will be produced in two months and can be shipped anywhere. To get to the studio, go half a block down the tiny street that extends in front of the venerable Azuma-ya soba restaurant.
