Sarayama, Arita at the time was sorted by Uchiyama, sotoyama, oosotoyama, and the use of the clay for chinaware of Ishiba (At that time, it was written as a doba.) was distinguished, too. Above all, called the thing to use in an order kiln (Nabeshima feudal clan kiln) which there was in Ookawachiyama was made using the raw materials of the highest grade.
