Saga prefecture in Kyushu is famous for a few different kinds of pottery styles. One of the most well-known is Imari-yaki from the areas of Imari and Arita. While yaki generally means “fired,” or in pottery’s case, translating to “ware,” there are a few different names that this area’s style of pottery goes by. Some call it Imari-Arita yaki while others just refer to it as imari-yaki. The Izumiyama Mountain in Arita was found to be rich in porcelain stone, making the areas of Arita and Imari ideal for the pottery work.
