The term Arita-yaki refers to porcelain made in the town of Arita in Saga Prefecture. In 1616 the Korean potter Ri Sanpei discovered the porcelain mineral kaolin at Mt. Izumiyama in Arita and for the first time porcelain could be made in Japan.
Beginning in 1650, Arita-yaki porcelain was exported through the Dutch West India Company from the port of Imari, and hence became known as Imari. Imari porcelain dishes were enjoyed throughout much of Europe.
