About Arita Porcelain
Arita is a well known historical porcelain producing area with a 400 year history. When you look carefully at Arita porcelain products, you will see how they differ from other porcelains, particularly in the subtle tones of white and beautiful artwork. Arita is known as the home of Imari porcelain, internationally the most famous type of Japanese pottery. The distinctive Japanese Arita porcelain is renowned for its superb quality and the tradition of porcelain making dating back 400 years, when Korean potters first discovered kaolin, a superior quality white clay in Arita and introduced the art of pottery to Japan.
