This piece dates to the 1880's late Edo, early Meiji Periods of Japan. It was made before the wireless technique was perfected as evidenced by the cracks in the background field of the central dragon. The outer rim of the back of the plate has a swirl pattern typical of the period. The dragon is clearly a happy guy.

plate has a diameter of 7 inches. Charming piece, no dings.
