Antique or Vintage Chinese Porcelain Plates?

I am interested in learning as much as possible about these plates including where and how they were made, who made them, when they were made, for whom they were made, and what they are worth. They have what appear to be three Chinese(?) characters on the back. They are approximately 6" in diameter. They depict rows of robed men radiating out from the center of the plate to the edge. They were a gift from a friend a decade or so ago. She purchased them at an antique store in Indiana, USA. Thank you!

Hello,
I'm afraid I cannot help much with these. They are Japanese and I do not know much about Japanese porcelain.
The mark means "Made by Kitagawa". That is all...
You will have to check on Japanese porcelain, probably 19th or 20th century. I guess it is either vintage or antique.
