The people who became Agano Ware potters first arrived in the Hizen and Karatsu regions (northern part of Saga prefecture), before finally relocating to Buzen and Agano (Tagawagun Fukuchimachi in Fukuoka prefecture) to establish kilns there. They became profoundly involved with the Hosokawa family that ruled Buzen and Kokura, producing ceramic tea ware at times.
