In Arita Ware, a unique ceramic stone called Amakusa Toseki is mainly used, and it is said that the whiteness of the stone is beautiful in itself. The ceramic stone giving Arita Ware light, unbreakable, and thin, it is characterized by a translucent surface when held up to the sun.

Also Arita Ware has range of expression from the underglaze technique called Sometsuke, which is painted with dark blue pigment called Gosu, to the overglaze technique, which uses a variety of vivid colors on a base of clear, beautiful white porcelain.

Among the styles, there is the Ko-Imari (old Imari), which was produced around the Edo period, the Kakiemon style with its characteristic red painting, the Nabeshima style, which was made as an offering to the government in Japan, and the Kinrande, with its gorgeous gilding, etc. Especially, the Kakiemon style and Ko-Imari of porcelain attracted Europeans with their beauty.
