 For those interested in Makuzu Ware. There is a great museum in Yokohama that features Makuzu ware and the works of Miyagawa Kozan.  Makuzu ware originated in Kyoto, but in 1869 two Yokohama merchants established a kiln for export wares. Miyakawa Kozan and his sons established a kiln in Minami Otamachi. (See Gorham p.150). I have seen the name written in English as Miyagawa and Miyakawa, but it is 宮川 in Japanese.
