Jicon is a porcelain brand originally launched by Touetsugama kiln together with Oji Masanori. The brand name means "porcelain (Ji) in modern times (Con)." In Buddhist terms, Jicon means "seize the day.” The Touetsugama kiln originated in Mikawachi of Sasebo City in Nagasaki Prefecture, as a house kiln under the patronage of the Hirado clan. The kiln was redeployed to Arita in Saga prefecture by Imamura Shikao XII for its expansion and is currently succeeded by Imamura Kenichi XIV.
