In 1932 the founder of Ginpo, Sutematsu Kumamoto, was a wholesaler of ceramics but had not come across any high-quality ceramics. As a goal to produce "high-quality manufactured goods" he founded Banko Shinko Yogyosho Limited, and began to mainly manufacture tableware, "Donabe" casserole pots and flower vases.
