Arita-yaki is Japan's oldest and most representative porcelain and ceramic artform. Arita ware is produced in Arita, located in the Saga Prefecture of Kyushu. The inventor of Arita-yaki is actually a Korean craftsman named Li Sam-Ping, who immigrated to Japan in the 16th century. At the time, Japan waged war with Korea. The Japanese army invaded the Korean peninsula and brought ceramic craftmen back to Japan. Li Sam-Ping, who lived in Kyushu, discovered white porcelain in the mountains of Arita. This discovery paved the way for the development of porcelain in Japan. Arita wares are lightweight and generally of a white base with blue handpainted decorations. Arita wares were once in high demand in Europe and America. Today, many visitors still visit the peaceful town of Arita to catch a glimpse of the birthplace of Arita-yaki.
