The Gen-emon kiln was established in Zemeki, Arita, 260 years ago and has preserved the tradition of 'Old Imari'. After the Second World War, Gen-emon expanded its traditional techniques by developing and producing restaurant tableware as well as artistic porcelain and later household tableware.
The characteristic styles of Gen-emon kiln are Early Imari and Exported Imari, which requires skillful brushwork. In addition, an original Gen-emon style based on the Imari styles has been developed to reflect contemporary tastes.
