Nambu ironware is said to have started around the middle of the 17th century, when the Nambu family, who were ruling the current northern part of Iwate prefecture, built Morioka castle and invited imoji and kamashi artisans from places such as Kyoto to have them make Buddhist altar articles, armor, and tea ceremony kettles as part of their plan to revitalize the city and promote cultural activities. With the rich natural resources of the land and the support of the domain leaders, Nambu ironware soon became the local specialty of the area. It came to be cherished as a gift to feudal lords. The Nambu "tekki" iron kettle which is especially famous and popular, was originally made as a smaller, improved version of the tea kettle in the 18th century. It triggered an increase in the recognition of Nambu ironware in the public eye, and in 1975, it was certified as a Traditional Craftwork of Japan.
