Koransha

Ezaiemon Fukagawa became the head of the Fukagawa family's porcelain manufacturing business in 1856 and founded Koransha (Company of the Scented Orchid) in 1875.

Koransha won the Grand Prix in International Exhibition in the United States in 1876 as well as the Gold Medal in the Paris International Exhibit of 1878. These and other awards prompted the Japanese Imperial Household to order their porcelain from Koransha. This is the ultimate honor for porcelain companies in Japan.

The Fukagawa family has been making porcelain since the 17th century (1689) and is still doing so today.
