  Start slide show:
I visited the small town called Imari in Saga prefecture on Japan's Kyushu island. Savvy art collectors will know the town's name in relation to it's most famous export: Imari pottery. Indeed the ceramics are beautiful and well-crafted in their simplicity. Yet, I was equally taken by the beauty of the flora and fauna of the little town. The history of Imari intrigued and saddened me too. Apparently, in Japan's history, Korean artisans were kidnapped, taken to Imari, and forced to work as potters. I saw graves bearing Korean names both at the entrance to the town and along the trails that wind about Imari. Take a look into a small, yet famous, town in Japan.
