I visited toguri-museum of art in Tokyo. It's porcelain museum in Tokyo. 


At that Imari ware(It made Mid 17th century in Japan) exhibition at toguri-museum, I found cute post card-Fish shaped dish imari ware.

In Japan the porcelain begun to produce in the Arita region of Saga Prefecture in the 1610s. It was shipped throughout Japan and abroad from the port of Imari. It was known as Imari ware around the world.The main decorative techniques used during this period were underglaze cobalt blue and white, celadon glaze, iron glaze, and lapis lazuli blue glaze.
