As quoted from Wikipedia:

Imari porcelain is the European collectors' name for Japanese porcelain wares made in the town of Arita, in the former Hizen Province, northwestern Kyūshū, and exported from the port of Imari, Saga, specifically for the European export trade.

The plate in this posting is one of my colleague collections; probably it was made in 18th ventury. It has 50 cm diameter, with clear red and blue color. Design and patter have similarity with Nejimon
