Fukugawa is a porcelain factory in the Arita region of Japanese. It was founded in 1856 and specialises in Imari ware. Since 1910 Fukugawa has been appointed to the Japanese Imperial Household.
Imari ware is the western name for a colourful style of Arita ware. It often consists of a palette of dark blues, red, oranges and black with gilded highlights. It became popular in Europe and was exported in the 17th and 18th centuries by the Dutch East India Company. The name Imari come from the port in Nagasaki from which the porcelain was shipped to Europe.
