Real life Japanese tea pot

Japanese tea pot car boot sale find this morning. In iron as a magnet sticks to it. Is very heavy. Writing on the bottom is Japanese. My 50+ year old eyes are not up to the detail! Can read the third and last characters. Will take it to work tomorrow as there's a new Chinese graduate who will have better eyes than me!!
