Nice, but your best bet is the Collecting Japanese Ceramics group on Facebook.

The clay body and the type of glaze suggest to me that it was probably made in Mino/Seto.

Japanese pottery marks are difficult to read even to most Japanese, as they are often stylised kanji based on old Chinese.

Unless someone has a similar style pot with this mark and knows where it was made or who made it then it is unlikely that you will get significant information about it.

The glaze is lovely but I've bought several pieces that appeared to be handmade but bore a factory mark and this looks to be a factory made body, so a Japanese speaker may be able to translate it.

It doesn't look factory made as we would understand it in this country.

It is hand thrown and the foot looks hand finished but that doesn't mean that it is the work of an individual potter. In Japan some quite large operations use "jobbing throwers" to produce typical wares for sale at modest prices.

To me the clay body is typical of the Mino/Seto region, as I stated above, and would be similar whether it was made in a factory, by jobbing potters for a large kiln or by an individual studio potter.
