Most probably it is 東都住政時作.
and Japanese.
Tōto jū Masatoki-saku
I wrongly associated it with Chinese (Dōngdū zhù Zhèng shí zuò).

Yes the characters are "東都住政時作".

It could be Japanese, but the English translation of it can be the same either it's Japanese or Chinese: "Made when Adminstrating in the East Capital".

東都住政時作 : the characters are all Chinese, but the way the characters are used are Japanese, for example, there is no such thing as 住政 in Chinese, I can only guess that it may mean some form of government or corporate or working at such places

The other characters literally mean the following
東都 : east capital
時作 : written during that period
