Brothers Yi Chak-kwang and Yi Kyong created Hagi ware in Japan when they came from Korea in 1604 to work at the kilns sponsored by Mōri Terumoto (1553–1625), then head of the Chōshō domain in what is now Yamaguchi prefecture. Sakata Deika, a descendant of the Yi family, was the 13th head of the kiln located in Fugawa, an area west of the present-day city of Hagi.
