About kutani ware
Kutani ware is a type of pottery produced in the Kaga region of Ishikawa Prefecture and it has a history of over 350 years.
It is characterized by the heavy brilliance of the five colors of green, yellow, red, purple, and navy blue that are applied to the bold and daring lines.
Its long history has evolved through the tireless efforts and enthusiasm of people who have sought innovation while maintaining tradition.
In the early 1700s, the Kutani kilns were closed, but about 80 years later they were opened and Kutani ware was revived.
The beauty of the various styles and methods of painting is known as "Japan Kutani" and is highly regarded around the world.

Best quality plate I ever had
I feel surprised 風呂敷 was using for wrapping the box instead of gift wrapped paper. It is showing more Japanese culture and the 風呂敷 is made in Japan. The box is very pretty. The plates is surprised me. The craftsmanship makes me so impressive and worth of the price. It is so delicate and so care on the details. The service is great and the delivery arrival is faster and safer than I expected. It is even better than amazon delivery.
