A Question about Japan--Tobacco Pipes.

I’ve seen old drawings & prints from Japan, in which both men & women were smoking tobacco in small pipes. There pipes were ceramic or metal, & had a tiny bowl.

What are they called?

Google:

“Japanese pipes called”

Don’t won’t to spoil it for you, but you’ll get a quick answer.

:dubious:

Google said that this did not match any documents.

BTW, Tony Randall as “Dr. Lao” smoked one in The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao.

However, since he was Chinese, I wonder if they are/were popular in China, too.

Strange.

I got “kiseru” right off the bat. (I didn’t include quote marks, if that makes a difference, though.)

I think the word you want is [link deleted].

That link is a no-no at work, people! :eek: :smack:

Oops, sorry - I only saw the pictures and didn’t realize it referred to, um, non-tobacco uses of the pipe.
