I would say Japanese, and agree it's likely to be early 20th Century.
As for what the mark stands for, I wouldn't like to say. It might simply be the place of manufacture or the name of the maker.

Traditional Japanese tetsubin are made of cast iron and this is not a traditional shape either.

Not saying that it wasn't made in Japan but it was almost certainly made for the European market.

Agreed. Very much a teapot in the Western tradition.
