I did a Google asterisk search for the mark, using "*木" for the presumed maker's name, and came up with 大日本肥前有田青木製 as what may be the mark on your vase. If correct, this may transliterate to "Dai Nip-pon Hi-zen Ari-ta Ao-ki Sei", or "Made by Aoki at Arita in Hizen Province of Imperial Japan".
It seems that "青" (Ao) can stand for "Aoki" all by itself, and there is a well known kiln family named Aoki who use "青" within square borders as their mark. Whether this relates to your vase will require further research on your part.
I've also included a link to a site with some information on Aoki Mokubei (青木木米 - 1767-1833), a famed Edo Period potter of Kutani ware, in the event you want to follow that lead to see if your vase might be related to this family.
