Japanese Arita ware is also known as Imari ware as a result of the products in the Arita Kiln being shipped from the port of Imari. In the early days Arita porcelains were typically made in the Chinese style of the period, with deep-blue patterns on a white background, called sometsuke = “blue-and-white” and were made in the Hizen province between the 16th to 19th centuries.
