In 1905, Kichinosuke Sasaki, a Nishikite painter, opened a kiln in Kiyomizu-zaka, Kyoto. Under the guidance of Goto Zuigan and Master Oda Sesshou of Daitokuji Temple, he served as the official kiln of Daitokuji Temple and worked on the revival of “Murasakino-yaki (the official kiln of Murasakino Daitokuji Temple, which started in 1804 under the guidance of the chief priest Shogetsu-an Chuho, but it was discontinued in 1818)”. His contribution to the restoration of Daitokuji Temple after the war was recognized by Master Oda Sesshou, and he received the title of “Narumo-ken”.
In 1944, the kiln was moved to Kameoka, Kyoto for evacuation.

When Ohnisaburo Deguchi, the founder of the Oomoto Sect, heard about this, he visited Shoraku. At that time, Shoraku helped Onisaburo to create his pottery and received the title of “Shoraku (※2)”. The famous tea bowl “Yowan” created by Ohninzaburo was fired from the clay of the Shoraku kiln at this time.
Sasaki Kichinosuke, the founder of Shoraku Kiln, was originally a painter of brocade pictures and did not make tea bowls. Also, Sasaki Narimitsu (? -1974), who took over the name of Shoraku II in 1935, mainly made flower pots.
Sasaki Tomio, born in 1944 and studied under Shoraku II from 1962, assumed the name Shoraku III in 1983, continued to specialize in tea ceremony utensils while continuing to study Raku ware, and is also active as the official kiln of Daitokuji Temple.
