Ditto the preceding response, plus the mark belongs to a kiln called 'Yamatoku" (Mountain Virtue).

This is a Japanese Imari Arita plate, marked: Yamatoku 山徳, see my 1st picture.
According to a Japanese book about Hizen / Arita marks this impressed Yamatoku mark dates from the 1920's - 1930's. Yamatoku is a kiln in the Saga Prefecture and was named after Yamaguchi Tokuichi (i.e.: Yama & Toku).
This mark is not as often seen as the Yamatoku mark in Katakana writing, see my 2nd picture.
