Ikenaga Iron Works Co.,Ltd. was founded in 1937 in Osaka, Japan. Their line of business was the manufacturing of steel castings including alloy, bushings and rolling mill rolls.
"Nambu cast ironware is produced in Morioka City and Mizusawa, Oshu City. In 1975, it was designated as a traditional craftwork. “Nambu” refers to the Nambu clan, who built Morioka Castle about 400 years ago. The Nambu lords made numerous efforts towards the cultural development of their fief, inviting artisans from Kyoto and promoting the tea ceremony. As a result, the production of cast ironware for the tea ceremony began to develop in the area, with all the necessary materials readily available locally: iron sand, river sand, clay, lacquer, charcoal, etc. The cast ironware of Mizusawa was originally developed about 900 years ago, by the Fujiwara clan who developed the Golden Culture." - A Trip to Iwate, Iwate Prefecture Tourism Portal Site
