For close to four hundred years, the Matsubayashi family has shaped exquisitely glazed pottery at the Asahi pottery in Uji, Japan.  If visiting the area, they allow visitors in the shop to watch the master artisans at work.  Asahi Pottery Museum runs pottery classes and one day trial workshops are also available so tourists can experience the fun of pottery.  We're not 100% sure if this set is related to this pottery, but we believe it is, and Sato/Gordon could simply be the importer.  If the pedigree is important to you, please continue the research and make your own determination.
