Dear I.Nagy,

Without being disrespectful, but Kutani is generally written as 九谷 (9 valleys). See:
In both cases there are marks displayed like this one here.

Dear Martin,

Thank you for your indication. Kutani is 九谷
and not (久谷)I have forgotten to check the conversion
result.The PC‘s program automatically converses kutani to 久谷.
Thank you again for the rectification.

With regards,
